Though warm weather still feels far down the road, County 10 reports on the exciting STEM focused opportunities available to students this summer in Wyoming.

Approximately 700 middle and high school students — representing all 23 Wyoming counties — will engage in diverse STEM experiences at the University of Wyoming May through July. These programs are designed to inspire Wyoming’s youth to further pursue interests in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

UW faculty, staff and accomplished students will deliver rich, hands-on learning activities to engage and motivate students; raise awareness of STEM-related careers; and highlight future opportunities at UW.

“At the University of Wyoming, preparation for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics begins long before college,” says Chip Kobulnicky, a UW professor of physics and astronomy, and program director for the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp.

STEM is essential to Wyoming’s workforce and future opportunities for its youth. In addition, STEM promotes problem-solving and critical skills necessary for all jobs in the 21st century.
