Target Applicant: Pre-University
The mission of the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program (DAPCEP) is to increase the number of historically underrepresented youth (African Americans, Latino Americans and Native Americans) who are motivated and prepared academically to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related fields.
DAPCEP programming helps students to develop the motivation and awareness of skills necessary for academic achievement and successful careers. Student problem solving skills are developed with the use of technology, aiding in the supply of cognitive skills that any student needs as a basis for successful comprehension of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) subjects.
There are three entry points for DAPCEP programming: Kindergarten, first grade, and fifth grade. DAPCEP In-School programming is also available at select middle schools.
