Open Minds Teen Science Cafés
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 meet other teens that enjoy science. This program is recommended for participants ages 11–17. The first 50 teens to arrive will receive a voucher for a free meal. This is a FREE event. No registration needed!
