Located on the ground floor of Coe Library, the Student Innovation Center is a relatively new feature of UW’s campus. The Coe Student Innovation Center (CSIC) is run by the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. According to their webpage, “the CSIC is a cutting-edge makerspace lab created to foster imaginative, collaborative, and innovative design projects.” The center’s equipment includes robotic kits, 3D printers, modeling & design software, and an electronics bench. The CSIC is an example to UW’s dedication to STEM excellence. Since 2012, the Wyoming State government has dedicated millions of dollars to the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences as part of the Tier-1 initiative, which is a program to elevate the CEAS to national prominence.

This emphasis on engineering makes the University of Wyoming ripe with posthuman possibility. As indicated by the colloquial name “makerspace”, the CSIC gives students the opportunity to use advanced technology to make new objects. The ability to create and innovate means that we, as humans, are constantly changing our own surroundings and, thus, the conditions under which we live. The makerspace allows students to take full advantage of their cyborg capabilities – that is, their proficiency with advanced technology – to take part in this posthuman process.
