What you need to know about Wyoming

The Cowboys fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Nevada Wolf Pack last Saturday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 37-34. QB Levi Williams put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for one TD and 227 yards on 31 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 40 yards. Xazavian Valladay also produced 131 yards from scrimmage in the loss.

The Wolf Pack threw for 420 yards and four touchdowns without an interception and completed 75 percent of their passes, which could spell trouble for the Cowboys against Hawaii’s wide-open offense.

Guest speakers at the virtual event include Mark Gordon, Governor of Wyoming,
and Surya (Sury) Kant, Chairman of North America, TCS. Robin Cooley, Director
of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, Laurel Ballard, the WDE's
State Leader for Teacher Resources and CS Education Champion, and Robert Kane,
U.S. Head, Life Sciences Industries, TCS, will make up the panel of judges,
and address the students on how important embracing technology and innovation
will be to their own careers and the future of Wyoming.

The event aligns with the Wyoming State Legislature's mandate that all schools
must integrate computer science (CS) into their curriculums by 2022. In 2018,
the Wyoming Department of Education addressed this need by launching a
partnership with TCS to bring its flagship STEM education program, goIT, to
all of Wyoming's middle school students.

goIT is a digital innovation education program that empowers students to
pursue careers in technology by engaging in standards-aligned, project-based
learning. Over the course of 12-20 hours, students learn about the importance
of CS and design thinking and are then challenged to ideate digital
innovations that solve or address community or world issues.

Founded in 2009, goIT has reached over 30,000 students in the US and Canada in
over 100 different cities and has engaged over 5,000 employee mentors. In
recent years, goIT has also expanded globally – and has now reached 22
countries and benefited over 75,000 students.

The Wyoming goIT program was piloted with Johnson County #1 School District
and reached over 300 students from Clear Creek and Kaycee Middle Schools. In
the second year of partnership, goIT expanded to three of the five planned
districts prior to COVID-19 shutdowns, impacting roughly 2,000 students from
seven different schools and challenging them to ideate apps that would attract
residents to the state, either by highlighting the unique opportunities to be
found living in Wyoming, or addressing some of the issues that students feel
drive residents away. Employees from TCS and the Wyoming Department of
Workforce Services have also volunteered their time to mentor students through
the program.

"TCS believes in empowering people and communities by connecting them to
opportunities in the digital economy," said Surya

Wyoming university reports 7 sorority students with COVID-19

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming announced Thursday that seven students in a sorority house have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Members of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority who tested positive for COVID-19 were put in isolation, while those who had close contact were told to quarantine, the Casper Star-Tribune reported.

It is unclear how many students were asked to shelter-in-place or quarantine.

Other members who live in the house and were not in close contact are still allowed to attend in-person classes, work and participate in religious activities, officials said.

The announcement came as the university is increasing COVID-19 testing procedures, including requiring all students to be tested twice a week instead of once a week beginning Monday, officials said. Staff is also expected to be tested more routinely.

University President Ed Seidel said that increased testing will help limit the spread “as much as possible” as cases have increased on the Casper campus and in Albany County.

The university has reported 148 active COVID-19 cases as of Thursday, up from 40 the day before, health officials said. The county has reported about 200 newly confirmed cases in the last seven days, with the highest rate of cases per 100,000 people in the state.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
