About Adult Enrichment
Sublette BOCES is pleased to offer a wide variety of adult education and enrichment courses.
Pilot shortages appear to be back. Boeing Aircraft predicts a potential need for 637,000 pilots and 622,000 aircraft technicians within the next 20 years. If you're a middle or high school student thinking about your future (or an adult considering a career change), a career in aviation or aerospace might be something to consider. This is an 8 week class designed to give you an overview of aerospace and aviation. You will participate in some serious Flight Simulator training. You will also get a good idea of what a typical aviation ground school is like. By the time you are done, you will be able to demonstrate the same level of technical knowledge and flight skills as that of a Student Pilot about to take their first solo flight. You won't actually qualify to solo a real aircraft, but you will come away with a solid understanding of what it takes to become a pilot. This course is limited to five (5) students. Parents and interested adults are welcome to enroll.

A Low-Carbon Future for Wyoming Fossil Fuels? Update on State and National Trends and the University of Wyoming’s Projects and Research in Western Wyoming Wyoming exports the bulk of its abundant energy resources, and thus is subject to market and policy developments beyond its borders. An increasing number of states are adopting policies that mandate the utilization of renewable and clean energy resources. The federal government continues to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from industrial facilities, including coal-fired power plants and natural gas separation plants. This Saturday University program will explore the global, national, and local decisions that affect our communities. Experts from the School of Energy Resources will explain current UW projects in western Wyoming as well as provide an important overview that will shape a community discussion about what the coming energy transition means for Wyoming. Mark Northam, Ph.D., Executive Director, School of Energy Resources, UW The Coming Energy Transition: Implications for Wyoming and the Globe The School of Energy Resources (SER) at UW was created in 2006 to enhance the university’s energy-related education, research, and outreach. SER directs and integrates cutting-edge energy research and academic programs at UW and bridges academics and industry through targeted outreach programs. Northam will look back to the founding of SER to discuss how the school is well-positioned to address the coming energy transition. This presentation will frame our discussion regarding the energy transition that is underway as it highlights the implications these changes have for our communities and state. Scott Quillinan, Geologist and Director of Research, School of Energy Resources, UW Technological Challenges and Opportunities for Wyoming: Ongoing Projects Advanced by the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources The energy transition is defined as a long-term structural change in energy systems and it will change how we use fossil fuels in the coming decades. For Wyoming to remain a leader in the fossil energy space, new and competitive technologies will need to be developed. This talk will introduce several initiatives advanced by SER that seek to develop new technologies and new markets for Wyoming resources: Wyoming CarbonSAFE, approaches to net-zero and carbon negative coal combustion technologies, novel non-thermal uses for Wyoming coal, and the ongoing critical mineral exploration to support the quickly growing demand for electric vehicle batteries. Kipp Coddington, Director of Energy Policy and Economics, School of Energy Resources, UW What SER’s New Policy Center is Doing to Help the State of Wyoming In mid-2019, SER launched a new interdisciplinary policy center to proactively analyze and address the international, national and state low-carbon energy policies that are presenting the State of Wyoming with both challenges and opportunities. The Center for Energy Regulation & Policy (CERP) was formed to develop and integrate world-class technical, economic, and regulatory policy analyses to develop effective and pragmatic energy policies and strategies to benefit the state, region and the nation. In this presentation Coddington will describe how CERP supports policymakers, decision-makers and scientists by creating a conduit for research to provide interdisciplinary information and knowledge to contribute more directly to Wyoming's citizenry and economy; by providing effective policy development and assessment; and by facilitating partnerships with public, private and non-governmental entities.
