Science Posse in the News
Let the Science Posse inspire you and your students! We are now taking requests for Spring 2015.
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.
Science Posse Fellows are also graduate students who are taking classes, doing research or both. To accommodate this, Fellows have a quota of days they can travel or do presentations in Laramie. Once their schedules are filled up, we will stop accepting requests.
At this point, we cannot accept requests for dates after April 30, 2015.
Work directly with Science Posse Fellows!

Do you have an iPhone or iPad? Check out this new app available on iTunes.
The DIY Human Body app (for iPhones and iPads) allows families and educators to investigate and learn about the human body at home, at school, or anywhere you go! The app provides 13 free, easy to use, hands-on activities, plus videos, and much more! Each activity includes material lists, step-by-step instructions, and detailed explanations. The activity materials are widely available and inexpensive, and you probably have many of them in your own home. The free app is available for iOS 7 and above.
Share your story about how the Science Posse is inspiring Wyoming's Next Generation of Scientists.
