What is the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources?

The School of Energy Resources is a relatively new program at the University of Wyoming. The program opened in 2006 and was designed to '[enhance] the university's energy-related education, research and outreach.' The school is home to the only four-walled 3D CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) in Wyoming and three Research Centers of Excellence.

Wyoming Representation on '60 Minutes'

Dr. Krutka's interview is not the first time the Equality State has appeared on '60 Minutes.' In March of this year, the Wyoming Honor Farm - a program working to rehabilitate inmates alongside taming wild horses on federal land, featured on the show. In 2022, the show explored Wyoming's majestic Green River Drift cattle drive. And in 2019, '60 Minutes' dined at one of Laramie's best-kept secrets - the Indian food at the Gem City's Akal Travel Center.
