Teen Science Cafés Have Gone Virtual!
Cafes will be held on YouTube until further notice. Register for each program to get the link.
Teen Science Cafés bring teens together in an informal setting to learn about science and technology. Cafés happen from 6pm to 7pm the first Friday of each month during the school year. Each café will include a scientist presentation, an interactive activity relating to the discussion, a Q&A session, and time to socialize with other teens that enjoy science. This program is recommended for participants ages 11–17. This is a FREE event. Registration is required. See the linked program titles below for registration information.
