Due to a change in the start time for the Jan. 23 University of Wyoming-Boise State men’s basketball game, the STEM Saturday schedule for that day has been altered.

STEM Saturday will provide roughly 100 K-12 students from around the state an opportunity to explore what STEM is about and have some fun discovering some science in the new Michael B. Enzi STEM Facility. The building will be used for most freshman- and sophomore-level science and mathematics labs at UW when the spring semester starts Jan. 25.

The game, originally scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. and be streamed on ESPN3, has been moved to 2 p.m. to accommodate the sports network, according to an announcement made by ESPN and the Mountain West Conference Jan. 8. Students registered for STEM Saturday can attend the game for free, and their parents can attend for a discounted price. Students, presenters and volunteers will receive a voucher for a soda, popcorn and a hot dog at the game.

The revised STEM Saturday schedule is as follows:

-- 9:15-10:15 a.m. Check in, breakfast and STEM Resource Fair, Wyoming Union Ballroom.

-- 10:15-10:45 a.m. Welcome/start, Wyoming Union.

-- 10:45-11:25 a.m. Hands-on STEM activity.

-- 11:35 a.m.-12:15 p.m. Hands-on STEM activity.

-- 12:25-1:05 p.m. Hands-on STEM activity.

-- 2 p.m. UW-Boise State men’s basketball game, Arena-Auditorium.

Hands-on sessions for STEM Saturday include: Fashion to Medicine: Using Code to Change the World; Become a Bubbleologist; A Make-and-Take with the Williams Conservatory; Harry C. Vaughan Planetarium; CAVE: 3D Shell Visualization Center; Wyoming Geology Museum; Stable Isotope Facility; UW Computing Center; Lactation in Mammals: UDDERLY COOL!; and Engineering Robotics Lab.

The workshops will be led by UW faculty, staff and students. For those interested in presenting a workshop, register at

STEM Saturday is sponsored by the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and the Department of Athletics.
