In past years, students have identified animal skulls, developed computer games, and learned about anatomy in UW’s Human Cadaver Lab. Many of the scientists leading the programs are women.</p> Mon, 13 May 2013 22:45:45 +0000 Rebecca Martinez 40720 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org UW to host hands-on workshop to inspire women to pursue science UW trustees mull new engineering, applied science facilities http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/uw-trustees-mull-new-engineering-applied-science-facilities <p>University of Wyoming Trustees met today to discuss the construction of new College of Engineering and Applied Science facilities. &nbsp;Lawmakers set aside matching money this year to get the project started.</p><p>UW Associate Provost Andy Hansen says the current facilities don&#39;t meet the students&rsquo; needs.</p> Thu, 03 May 2012 23:42:05 +0000 Irina Zhorov 23547 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org UW trustees mull new engineering, applied science facilities
