UW STEM Opportunities Abound for Wyoming Students This Summer

Students Participating in the UWYO Summer Programs

Approximately 700 middle and high school students -- representing all 23 Wyoming counties -- will engage in diverse STEM experiences at the University of Wyoming May through July. These programs are designed to inspire Wyoming’s youth to further pursue interests in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

UW faculty, staff and accomplished students will deliver rich, hands-on learning activities to engage and motivate students; raise awareness of STEM-related careers; and highlight future opportunities at UW.

“At the University of Wyoming, preparation for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics begins long before college," says Chip Kobulnicky, a UW professor of physics and astronomy, and program director for the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp.

STEM is essential to Wyoming’s workforce and future opportunities for its youth. In addition, STEM promotes problem-solving and critical skills necessary for all jobs in the 21st century.

STEM Essential to Wyoming’s Workforce

Programs include the Healthcare Careers Summer Camp, Engineering Summer Program, Energy Summer Institute, Summer Research Apprentice Program, Women in Science, Summer High School Institute, Wyoming Energy Camp, and Upward Bound Math & Science. In addition, the university’s statewide reach extends with the annual 4-H Showcase Showdown, as well as programs delivered through the Berry Biodiversity Institute, Science and Math Teaching Center, and Wyoming Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Center. Many programs are offered for little to no cost to the participants and serve students entering grades 6-12.   

The 2015 summer programming will be initiated with the Women in Science Conference, a one-day event May 19 that welcomes up to 500 Wyoming students to UW for a day of lab tours and hands-on workshops. The conference is designed to allow young women in grades 7-12 to learn firsthand about STEM careers from accomplished professional women. Registration is now open for Women in Science.

Engineering Summer Program

When it comes to the future of engineering, high school students play a big role. As the University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) moves toward its Tier 1 vision, attracting the best and brightest high school students is key.
