A University of Wyoming program to enhance blockchain, finance and digital literacy learning for Wyoming high school students will be available through Wyo BEE in fall 2024.
Wyo BEE -- which stands for Wyoming Blockchain Education for Everyone -- will supply 12 teaching modules for high school juniors, seniors and community college students to access. Included in the program is a textbook, co-written by Steve Lupien, UW Center for Blockchain and Digital Innovation director. The modules also will have teacher’s manuals, quizzes and digital certification for students who successfully complete the coursework. A digital game to help reinforce what students learn also is planned for the program.
“Wyoming has become a world leader in blockchain-related laws,” Lupien says. “It is important that high school, community college and university students, as well as the public, learn about the impacts of blockchain.”

A textbook co-written by the director of the University of Wyoming Center for Blockchain and Digital Innovation provides students and teachers with insights into the future of blockchain and Web 3.0.
Steve Lupien co-wrote “Blockchain Fundamentals for Web 3.0” with Mary Lacity, a distinguished professor of information systems and director of the Blockchain Center of Excellence in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. The textbook was published this fall by the University of Arkansas Press.
Lupien teaches several courses in UW’s minor in blockchain degree program. Lupien says he and Lacity were motivated to write a textbook due to the fast-evolving nature of blockchain, which made many available books dated. While there are numerous books on blockchains, crypto and digital assets, he and Lacity focused on blockchain applications for Web 3.0.
