Destination: Wyoming

Pioneer spirit

2020 has been a crazy year for universities around the world. But despite the disruption caused by the pandemic, the University of Wyoming has held tight to its spirit of innovation. During this stop on the virtual road trip, we visit the campus in Laramie, WY where researchers run experiments on one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. Students can access state-of-the-art “innovation centers”—makerspaces where curiosity and creativity are matched with the tools to turn big ideas into reality. This commitment to innovation is essential to address the challenges students face today—and in the future.
