Connecting University of Utah scientists with Utah's incarcerated youth
The goal of our program is to inspire youth who are currently in custody to self-identify with the enterprise of science, and encourage them to learn and contribute to science, nature protection, and the STEM workforce.
This work is supported by a two-year grant from the Utah State Office of Education.
Locally-based scientists present their experiences and research to youth in care
Scientists provide in-depth explorations of their fields through six weekly topic-focused workshops
Scientists and artists provide biweekly hands-on activities that connect youth in care with their communities
