Open Minds Teen Science Cafés

Teen Science Cafés bring teens together in an informal setting to learn about science and technology. Each café will include a scientist presentation, an interactive activity relating to the discussion, and time to meet other teens that enjoy science. The cafés are led by our Café Coordinator group, so it is truly a teen event.

This nationwide program is funded by a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation. The North Carolina network partners include the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Morehead Planetarium and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Whiteville.

All teens are welcome to join us for our FREE Teen Science Cafés at the Museum. No registration needed!
