Linford Balloon Launch

Yellowstone Teton Clean Energy Logo

The Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition has developed a curriculum focused on alternative fuels in the transportation sector for grades 3-12. You can view a PDF with introducing the curriculum and see the table of contents here.

The Coalition is planning to travel to 6 locations in Wyoming to put on workshops demonstrating the curriculum, and educating teachers about alternative fuels and their relevance to the region. They are gathering data on the level of interest in different parts of the state so they can choose the best locations for the workshop. If you are interested in a training or workshop in your city, click here to fill out their form.  

The 2015 Wyoming State Science Fair sponsored by the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center at University of Wyoming will be held March 1-3, 2015.

Let the Science Posse inspire you and your students!

Since 2006, the Science Posse's scientists, mathematicians and engineers have brought their excitement about science and their passion for outreach to students and teachers across the state.  NSF granted us an extension through April 30, 2015 which will allow us continue to connect our graduate Fellows with teachers and students on a limited basis and provide a bridge as we secure funding for the next iteration of the Science Posse.
