Bringing Students to UW

This website is designed to make science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and career and technical education (CTE) educational opportunities accessible to students, parents, teachers and other interested citizens.

This website is a work-in-progress. If you know of a program that should be included, please "Add Your Program". Questions or Comments? Contact us!

Lab Tours with the Science Posse

What do scientists do all day? Science Posse Fellows are excited to show students and teachers the research labs at the University and to provide hands-on experiences to give them a taste of what scientists, engineers, mathematicians do.


Visit the Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center, home of the Biodiversity Institute

The Berry Center is a great place for families, classes and the UW community to visit, interact and learn! The Biodiversity Institute organizes a wide variety of science and art related activities include biodiversity field trips, and workshops; movies and musical performances, citizen science activities like Mission Impossible: WyoBio; as well as organized visits to the UW Museum of Vertebrates, "Berry Prairie" Green Roof, Wyoming Natural Diversity Database, and the Stable Isotope Facility. Join us, and see science in action!


Geology Museum

The University of Wyoming Geological Museum in Laramie supports academic programs, scientific research and public education. It is overseen by the Department of Geology and Geophysics in the College of Arts and Sciences. The UW Geological Museum features a variety of displays to illustrate Wyoming's past environments, highlighted by a 75-foot Apatosaurus (Brontosaurus) skeleton that dominates the museum's exhibit hall. Another highlight is "Big Al," a display of the most complete Allosaurus fossil ever found. Bring your students to campus and get a guided tour of this amazing facility!


Shell 3-D Visualization laboratory

The Shell 3-D Visualization research laboratory, located on the second floor of the Energy Innovation Center (EIC), is the only four-walled CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) and 3-D visualization laboratory in Wyoming and complements the primary function of the EIC – to enable scientists and engineers to visualize and interact with highly complex data sets. Request a tour of the facility today!


Women in Science - University of Wyoming campus

The Women in Science Conference is designed to allow young women in grades 7 through 12 to learn first-hand about careers in science, mathematics, and technology from accomplished professional women. Students travel to the University of Wyoming campus and attend various STEM workshops throughout the day.


Women-Men in Science - Central Wyoming College campus

The Women-Men in Science Conferences are designed to allow young men and women to learn first-hand about careers in science, mathematics, and technology from accomplished professionals. Conferences alternate each year for men and women. Students travel to the Central Wyoming College campus and attend various STEM workshops throughout the day.
