LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming’s College of Education has a new program to foster hands-on learning activities for students of all ages.

The program is called WyoMakers.

It provides a variety of tools, software and equipment, including work stations and a three-dimensional printer, to engage students in creative projects drawing on design and problem-solving skills.

For example, students at Laramie Junior High School will design boats using conventional materials such as cardboard and foil. They will take those designs to the UW campus to create prototypes on the WyoMakers 3D printer and test performance under different circumstances.

Students then can adjust their original designs based upon what they learn from the prototype test.
