Science Posse in the News
Requests for Spring will close at 5:00 pm on February 10.
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, do virtual visits or do presentations in Laramie. The Fellows' schedules are almost filled up, so we will stop accepting requests at 5:00 pm on February 10.
At this point, we cannot accept requests for dates after April 30, 2015.
