STEM LEAPS, Law Enforcement and Public Safety Learning Labs

Careers in law enforcement and public safety require increasing levels of STEM proficiency. To address this largely unmet need, these programs have been developed by STEP, Riverside Unified School District, the Riverside Police Department and Bourns, Inc. with lead funding from the Motorola Solutions Foundations with support from Wells Fargo, NAVSEA Corona and Brilliant School Apps.
