About STEM in Motion

The Utah STEM in Motion team travels to schools and other organizations across the state to provide hands-on, project-based learning for children K-8th grade. The STEM in Motion aims to generate enthusiasm for STEM careers and supports the Governor’s initiative for a STEM-competitive workforce. The program is run through the STEM Action Center, which is part of the Utah Department of Cultural & Community Engagement (CCE). Each school year STEM in Motion visits over 70 schools across Utah. Our STEM Bus was donated by the UTA and was converted to a mobile classroom in 2016.
