STEM Day at Area 59 introduces Gillette Mustangs

Available at:


  • Locals can meet the Gillette Mustangs and take part in football-themed STEM activities from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Gillette College Area 59.

    Those attending the STEM Day will laser cut a flick football, program a robot to run some plays, use a catapult to explore the physics of football, see the CNC router carve a mustang and even make their own Mustang window cling. The free event also provides a time for people to meet the players and take photos.

    In their third year, the Gillette Mustangs are an indoor arena football team that kicked off this year’s season two weeks ago. The team’s first home game is March 25 at Cam-plex Wyoming Center where they will take on the Sioux City Bandits.
