Wasatch CAPS Highlights - Fall 2018

Visit From Lt. Governor Cox 

The Lieutenant Governor came to Wasatch CAPS on September 25th to discuss collaboration. His wealth of experience in the political and business world was both insightful and easy to relate to. At the end, he encouraged CAPS students to enhance their team work and collaboration skills. For more information, KPCW reported on the event.

Reviving The Chukar

Lukas Korologos and his team out on the Wallsburg Wildlife Management Unit monitoring chukars. The team was able to identify and map where the Wasatch CAPS raised chukars are located and how they are surviving. 

CAPS has been raising chukars for the last 2 years, teaming with the DNR. The effort is to help revive the chukars into certain areas. 

VR in Health

The health course recently acquired a VR (Virtual Reality) set up. In the picture featured, students are looking at the lungs and can see what it looks like as different diseases impact them. Dr. Stevens has assisted the students as they undertake to utilize the powerful VR technology with their education and client projects.

Creating Logos

Students spent the first few days of Wasatch CAPS preparing them to work with business and organization partners. Boot camp focuses on student engagement and 21st century skills. Teamwork, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving are just a few of the items covered during boot camp.

Gravity Orders

Kaleb Jensen, Dylan Cozens, and Mitchel Slack were responsible for helping Gravity Coalition create their winter purchase order. They analyzed current market trends and helped pick out the apparel and ski gear. 

Glass Designs

Colby Davis and his team sketch out potential design options as they work on a project with client Spencer Coleman (Signarama - Midway, UT). Brainstorming and creativity takes many different forms at CAPS, but is always encouraged!

Director's Message

Fall Highlights

This fall has been full of excitement and energy in the Wasatch CAPS facility. We have had students tracking chukars to creating of 3D logos. We are pleased with how the students and our partners are working together to create something truly special. In a recent visit, Congressman John Curtis said of CAPS, "I wish they had something like this when I was in school."  We love what is being done at CAPS, and feel privileged to be part of it.
