The 55,000 incarcerated youth in our country face barriers to aspire to and become scientists. We connect science and scientists with incarcerated youth in detention centers in Salt Lake Valley. These activities inspire and connect youth in juvenile justice services with local scientists and research to help overcome their life challenges.
