The CEAS will participate in the activities by sending a team of undergraduate volunteers to engage elementary-school students with hands-on activities in their classroom.

Computer science will be the focus across Wyoming next week and the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Wyoming will be a critical program partner in the effort.

The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) has designated Dec. 3-7 as “Wyoming Computer Science Week” throughout the state. The CEAS will participate in the activities by sending a team of undergraduate volunteers to engage elementary-school students with hands-on activities in their classroom.

The student volunteers include Computer Science students Rafer Cooley, Shaya Wolf, Jake Centner, Andey Tuttle and Jason Fantl. The group will lead “plugged” and “unplugged” activities, and CEAS Outreach Coordinator Teddi Freedman estimates the group will engage about 200 students over the course of the week. The schools involved in the event include Prairie Wind Elementary School in Cheyenne, Wyo., and Beitel Elementary School in Laramie, Wyo.

CEAS Computer Science Week schedule
Dec. 3 - Prairie Wind Elementary School – Second grade | Beitel Elementary School – Kindergarten, fifth grade
Dec. 5 - Beitel Elementary School – First grade, fourth grade
Dec. 6 - Beitel Elementary School – Family Code Night
Dec. 7 - Beitel Elementary School – First grade


Robotics Competition
Members of the CEAS Outreach Team will participate in the Rocky Mountain BEST Robotics Competition on Dec. 8-9. The competition, which takes place in Denver, aims to inspire middle- and high-school students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. The CEAS is a sponsor of the event.
