YouthCity STEM

Registration Form
 
YouthCity STEM, in partnership with the Tracy Aviary and the Sorenson Unity Center, will help middle- and high-school youth obtain in-demand skills and explore career pathways in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields clustered around environmental, life and earth sciences. In addition, participants will develop academic, life skills and social competencies to prepare them for employment in Utah's workforce, break the cycle of poverty and foster healthy personal development. Data indicates lack of access to skill-building opportunities in STEM fields and STEM careers is a critical factor for underserved youth residing in the city's urban core.

The program’s goal is to support the in-school science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies for middle and high-school youth by providing evidence-based, out-of-school time STEM programming.

An initial pilot program for the new STEM program will run for seven weeks, from November 3 to December 19 at the Sorenson Unity Center and will focus specifically on Food Sustainability and the Jordan River. 

“The Hunger Games: Food, Science, and Sustainability” will explore the food supply chain from field to plate, utilizing cooking and science projects to help students understand where food comes from, how it’s prepared and stored, and how it impacts our daily lives. “The Hunger Games” program will meet Mondays and Wednesdays, from 3-7 p.m.

“Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse: Ecology on the Jordan River” will explore the environment on and around the Jordan River, how it’s changed over time and how students would survive on it through the lens of civilization has just ended by cataclysm.  Students will experience extended outdoor time, learn basic wilderness survival skills and study the Jordan River’s flora and fauna.  “Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse” will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3-7 p.m.

Programs begin November 3 and continue to December 19. Youth and families seeking more information, or who are interested in registering can download the registration form HERE, or should contact Damian Choi at 801-535-7917. These programs are offered at no cost to families.
