At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and this workshop will give you science-backed skills for working through mental health challenges and documenting your journey. We’ll begin the workshop by customizing personal journals with collage materials, offering a simple way to visualize your thoughts and moods. Then, Claire Adams of the Community Writing Center will offer an overview of what mental health journaling can do for you, guiding you through several prompts that will help you get started on your path to wellbeing.
This workshop is also a fundraiser, and 10% of ticket sales will be donated to the Behavioral Health Innovation & Dissemination Center at the University of Utah, where new breakthroughs in mental health treatment are always being studied. We’ll hold this workshop at the University of Utah’s NEXUS Facility, and detailed instructions on parking and location will be sent two days prior to the event to help you get there.

University of Utah Children’s Dance Theatre presents “Salt”
The Children’s Dance Theatre invites you to come experience a magical adventure for all ages, based on a whimsical folk tale. Three brothers set out to seek their fortunes in a world full of fierce trolls and hungry giants. Ashlad, the youngest brother, is ridiculed and thought of as foolish because he asks so many questions. But Ashlad’s curiosity and kindness seem to bring him remarkable luck wherever he goes. Ultimately, Ashlad proves himself not so foolish after all, and brings home the unlikeliest of treasures, more precious than gold.

He will describe novel electromechanical designs that will empower next-generation bionic limbs to match the strength and speed of biological legs. He will demonstrate intelligent control systems that synchronize the movements of the bionic leg with the human nervous system, enabling individuals with amputation to perform activities that are impossible with conventional prostheses. Finally, Dr. Lenzi will discuss critical challenges and areas of future research that must advance for bionics to become a part of our lives.

Join the Utah Film Center on Wednesday, April 5 at 7 pm at The City Library in downtown Salt Lake for a free film screening of the award-winning documentary, All That Breathes.
Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Spring Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, All That Breathes documents the story of two brothers who fall in love with the black kite bird in one of the world’s most populated cities, New Dehli.
This mesmerizing story follows the “kite brothers” as they care for thousands of creatures sick from smog-choked skies in their makeshift bird hospital inside the tiny basement of their home. As environmental toxicity and civil unrest escalate, the relationship between this Muslim family and the neglected kite forms a poetic chronicle of the city’s collapsing ecology and rising social tensions.
We invite you to stay after the screening as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts an engaging conversation with film director, Shaunak Sen about the restorative efforts despite dealing with some of the world’s poorest air quality.
