Wyoming EPSCoR is a program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support researchers, students, and institutions in Wyoming by building a robust and diverse research educational infrastructure in the state by supporting and facilitating programs.
The goals of Wyoming EPSCoR are:
The Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics encompasses new physical and intellectual infrastructure that enables a comprehensive research program linking surface and subsurface watershed hydrology, geophysics, remote sensing, and computational modeling.
Track 2 Research Project, A Utah-Wyoming Cyberinfrastructure Water Modeling Collaboration. CI-WATER’s cyberinfrastructure team focuses on expanding Utah and Wyoming’s capacity to use high-performance computing for innovative research.
WY EPSCoR works to foster and develop sustainable and scalable institutional capacity within EPSCoR funded projects and across campus. The unifying focus for all of this work is water in the west, our current research focus area.

While days may be short and nights long, winter time presents a new world to explore and opportunities to engage students in the study and practice of science. This course focuses on snow science through lectures and inquiry-based field laboratories. This workshop will introduce the foundations of snow science while highlighting the ways in which it can be used to explore and introduce concepts in elementary and secondary science. Participants will take part in a variety of hands on, inquiry-based activities that can be integrated into their curricula. Participants that complete the workshop have the opportunity to earn a continuing education credit from either the University of Wyoming, or the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board (PTSB).
