Women in Science Conference Comes to UW May 8

Posted on May 4th, 2007

Hosted by Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium at UW, the conference provides mentors and role models to young people who are pursuing careers in science, engineering, mathematics, and technology. Students will receive information about planning for college and will be able to experience the UW campus.

"They will have the opportunity to meet professional women in different science careers and participate in hands-on science workshops to learn what jobs in science are really like," says Michelle Stark, the space grant consortium's associate director.

Dannele Peck, a professor in the agriculture and applied economics department at UW, will be the keynote speaker. Her research focuses on the economics of wildlife and livestock interactions, such as disease transmission, predation, and the provision of wildlife habitat.

Other workshop presenters include UW faculty and students, and representatives of the National Weather Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Girl Scout Council of Wyoming, and nanoMaterials Discovery Corporation of Cheyenne.

This year's workshops include topics from the following areas: alternative energy, animal science, astronomy, botany, chemistry, civil and architectural engineering, communication disorders, developmental psychology, electrical and computer engineering, family and consumer sciences, geology and geophysics, kinesiology and health, meteorology, microbiology, molecular biology, nursing, physics, renewable resources, science education, veterinary science, wildlife biology, and zoology and physiology.

The following communities and schools will participate in the WIS conference:

Baggs -- Little Snake River Valley School.
Big Piney -- Big Piney High School.
Casper -- Centennial Junior High School, Dean Morgan Junior High School.
Cheyenne -- Johnson Junior High School, McCormick Junior High School, Central High School, Community Based Occupational Education High School.
