National Lab Day

National Lab Day at the University of Wyoming

The University of Wyoming is proud to co-host the National Lab Day in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). This event will be held April 12 & 13, 2023, and was created for participants to learn about and explore opportunities for partnerships with DOE national laboratories.  The agenda and networking opportunities will be designed to acquaint UW researchers, industry, small-businesses, and students with DOE national laboratory scientists and leaders.

The DOE maintains 17 preeminent national laboratories across the country, each providing distinctive scientific and technological capabilities that are often beyond the scope of academic and industrial institutions. The Labs also operate and maintain major scientific user facilities as shared resources for the scientific community, and they provide extraordinary educational opportunities for students.

UW’s DOE National Lab Day will provide an introduction to the national labs with panel discussions on topics, such as energy, environmental science and computing. Attendees will be able to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to meet lab directors and scientists; learn about the facilities and expertise available to support research, technology development, education; and discover how to engage with national lab scientists.

The average high temperature in Laramie in April is 51°F and the average low is 24°F.  Average precipitation in April is .4”.

Because Laramie, Wyoming is located 7,220 feet (2,194 meters) above sea level, we recommend taking the following health-related precautions: 

·         Drinking plenty of water is the number one way to help your body adjust easily to our higher
          altitude. The low humidity in Laramie keeps the air dry, like the desert, so you need about twice
          as much water here as you would drink at home.

·         It is also recommended that you limit your alcohol intake, as its effects will feel stronger here.

·         The effects of exercise are more intense here as well. If you normally run 10 miles a day at
          home, you might try 6 miles in Laramie.

·         There is 25% less protection from the sun’s rays in Laramie, so we recommend you wear 
          sunscreen when you are outside.
