The UCROSS Pollination Experiment documentary has been released!

The Ucross-Pollination Experiment follows eight academics as they step beyond their disciplines: blurring the boundaries of science, art, and the humanities. The experiment teamed up four pairs from the fields of art and science in an effort to promote collaboration beyond one's academic specialty.  The partners were asked to view the Ucross environment  through both their partner's discipline and their own. Over the course of 11 days, each of the pairs produced a collaborative project that was presented to the public at Saturday U.

April 13, 2016 — Southwestern Wyoming residents can attend college for a day when Saturday University is in session Saturday, April 23, in Rock Springs. The spring term of Saturday University -- the University of Wyoming’s popular, free college education program -- concludes with two UW professors and a Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) faculty member lecturing. Understanding the Yellowstone River Compact, looking at drought issues in the Intermountain West and studying climate change are topics that will be discussed in Room 1309 at WWCC. The program is free and open to the public. The half-day of college classes and discussion begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by a welcoming address at 8:50 a.m. The guest lectures begin at 9 a.m. Lunch will be provided following the lectures at 12:30 p.m. In its eighth year, Saturday U is a collaborative program that connects popular UW and Wyoming community college professors with lifelong learners. Offered multiple times a year -- twice each in Jackson, Gillette and Sheridan -- Saturday U is sponsored by the university, the UW Foundation and Wyoming Humanities Council, and is presented locally by WWCC and the UW Outreach School. This is the first Saturday U event in Rock Springs. Participants may attend one, two or all three lectures.
