Thank you for completing this recommendation for your student, who is applying for the Café Coordinator program at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. Café Coordinators focus on leadership and science communication. They host monthly Teen Science Café programs, public programs where teens can hear a guest presentation from a scientist, discover their career and do a hands-on activity. Coordinators meet with guest scientists to plan their presentations, plan and lead activities, welcome Café attendees, emcee the events up on stage and more.

We are looking for students who are comfortable working with peers and adults, who can voice opinions, and who want to share their excitement about science with others.
