Join us in our interactive series: Taking Flight Nights: Teen STEAM Cafés at Tracy Aviary!

Please note that these programs are for ages 13-18.

These events are designed just for teens! Hardworking members of our Teen Advisory Board have invited professionals in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math to share their work through engaging hands-on activities and discussions.

The theme for this Taking Flight Night is HEALing our Air! Jessica Reimer from HEAL Utah will be joining us to discuss air quality in Utah and what we can do to help improve it. Learn more about Jessica and her work with HEAL Utah below. This is sure to be a fun and informative event that you won't want to miss! A light dinner will be provided and, as always, this event is free for 13-18 year olds. 

Gates open at 5:45 pm. Food and fun start at 6:00 pm.

Please register here to make sure we have enough food for you!

jessica takingflightnightJessica joined the HEAL Utah policy team in 2017. She focuses primarily on HEAL’s air quality campaign and is dipping her toes into the radioactive waste world. She is helping to facilitate HEAL’s continued evolution while developing her own niche at the interface of people, policy, and the environment.

Raised in Salt Lake City, Jessica has always had a deep love for Utah. But it took leaving to truly appreciate all that Utah has to offer. She graduated with a BS in Environmental Sciences from Santa Clara University in California, where field experiences in Costa Rica, Australia, and Mexico helped her realize the important link between human and environmental health. She went on to earn her MS in Ecology from Oregon State University and then pivoted into environmental policy to directly influence the issues she cares most about. After working for the past few years in science communication for international policymakers, the call of the Wasatch mountains, and a desire to make a difference locally brought her back home. She is excited to be less than 20 minutes from skiing and hiking again and to work towards making Utah a healthier place to live.
