University of Wyoming offers new energy course

LARAMIE, Wyo – Wyoming’s stature among energy-producing states in the U.S. is a lofty one, and a new course within the University of Wyoming’s Summer High School Institute (HSI) will help students understand why that is important.

Tawfik Elshehabi, a UW Department of Petroleum Engineering associate lecturer, will present “Wyoming Energy 4 You” during the summer session of HSI, which takes place June 10-30. Since 1985, Wyoming’s rising junior students have had the opportunity to have their first taste of college life while attending the program. HSI offers courses in the science fields, as well as the humanities, and UW will host 97 scholars for the summer program.
