Wyoming EPSCoR Update

Hello everyone,
We hope your week has been going well! Our blog story for the week will be posted over the weekend, but in the mean time, we'd love to give you an update about our recent EPSCoR action.

 * October 11-14 two EPSCoR personnel, Beth Cable and Lisa Abeyta, along with Environmental and Natural Resources (ENR) at UW took 4 undergraduates and 1 graduate student to Seattle, Washington for the annual Society for Advancing Hispanics/Chicanos and Native American Students in Science (SACNAS) conference.
*On October 16 Dr. Christopher Emdin came to UW to share his philosophy on teaching science. We had a great turn out of current teachers, university faculty and education major students. Thank you Dr. Emdin for visiting us!
*This month the Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics worked with local 3rd and 4th graders during a field trip to the Laramie Greenbelt. A masters student working with Dr. Scott Miller worked with the teacher to help students connect with nature in their own backyard.
* October 30-November 4 Beth Cable, along with ENR, will take 6 Native American students to the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) conference in Anchorage, Alaska.
*The deadline for the EPSCoR/INBRE undergraduate research fellowship closed and this year's awardees will be announced later this fall.

We'll have more information and stories about these events in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned for this week's story about an engineer who helps keep Wyoming highways safe during winter travel.
