STEM Community Alliance Program (STEMCAP)
The STEM Community Alliance Program (STEMCAP) in the Office of Engagement at the University of Utah is recruiting STEM-engaged presenters to provide workshops to Youth-In-Custody (YIC). Scientists (faculty, post-docs, and graduate students) work with STEMCAP staff to develop presentations that best fit the scientists’ research and their public engagement and broader impact goals. Presenters meet with staff as they develop presentation materials tailored to incarcerated youth. STEMCAP staff review presenters’ materials, help develop appropriate hands-on activities, and guide presenters in security procedures at the YIC centers. Topics/disciplines include the traditional STEM areas and the social and health sciences. Artists and writers whose work engages with these disciplines or who seek an opportunity to work with a scientist are also encouraged to apply. Presentations range from 45-80 minutes long, depending on the facility. For more information, please review these two flyers (flyer 1 and flyer 2) or visit our website. To present with STEMCAP, fill out a presenter information form. Please contact STEMCAP's Associate Director, Laura George (firstname.lastname@example.org), with any questions.
