There are over 55,000 youth in custody in the United States. The presence of scientists who can directly and experientially present the content and process of the science enterprise, and inform them of jobs related to science can inspire and motivate youth.
STEMCAP programming is designed to fuel creativity and to effectively inspire and communicate STEM concepts to youth who have complex and diverse backgrounds. Our approach brings experts in science, the arts, and culture to increase awareness of, interest in, and the capacity to achieve in STEM topics; to enhance educational self-discovery, and provide a constructive creative outlet for youth participants.
Support for this program has been provided by the Utah State Board of Education and the Juvenile Justice Service.
