Saturdays with DAPCEP
February 21 – March 28
Every spring and fall, hundreds of students from across metropolitan Detroit participate in DAPCEP Saturday programming.
Through our partnerships with Michigan universities, community organizations, and corporations, we are able to offer students unique, hands-on courses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. See the Spring Courses and Fall Courses tabs for a detailed list of offerings.
Each course is comprised of a series of five (5), consecutive Saturday sessions held on a university or community campus. Students receive a certificate of completion and participate in a final showcase at the conclusion of the semester. Bus transportation is available for most courses.
Through the generous support of our sponsors, partners, alumni, parents, and community, we are able to provide these courses tuition-free to students. A $25 application fee is required, however, limited financial aid is available to eligible families.
DAPCEP has exposed, motivated, and prepared students for futures as engineers, doctors, scientists, entrepreneurs and more since 1976. To get a better understanding of the impact of the program, we encourage you to speak to current students, alumni, and parents who are all part of the DAPCEP family!
