The Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium sponsors education and research programs in the state of Wyoming in support of NASA missions, serving as a link between citizens of the state and NASA programs. It is one of 52 consortia representing each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Our programs include research fellowships and internships for students at the University of Wyoming and Wyoming community colleges, scholarship programs for community college students in STEM majors, grants for college and university faculty, and educational resources and programs for Wyoming K-12 students and teachers.

The Science Kitchen is a center for introducing students to physical sciences through hands-on exploration and problem solving. In the Science Kitchen, K-12 students and teachers can build, create, and explore scientific ideas through interactive experiments and group work.

HIGH-ALTITUDE BALLOONING

Since 2014, our high-altitude balloon program has allowed us to launch balloons and payloads with dozens of schools, science camps, after school programs, and other educational groups. We hope that these exciting high-altitude ballooning events provide authentic learning experiences for students and teachers across Wyoming.

UW TETON STEM ACADEMY

The UW Teton STEM Academy is a competitive annual summer camp for rising 9th, 10th, and 11th graders in Wyoming. Each year students explore subjects related to science, technology, engineering, and math.
