Describe the Activity:
Teen Science Cafés are a series of free, fun, out-of-school events where teens get to socialize over food and refreshments and have the opportunity to talk with local scientists and engineers about current cutting-edge ideas in science and technology, all in a relaxed and informal setting.
Teen Science Cafés are for teens, by teens. A core group of Teen Leaders, with the committed mentorship of an adult, plan and run the café themselves. They make welcome as diverse of a teen crowd as possible—diverse in ethnicity, culture, gender, and motivations for learning about science. Teen Science Cafés are not just for the science geeks; they are for all curious teens. Along the way, teen organizers gain a host of leadership skills.
Cafés are typically 1-1.5 hours, once per each month during the school year, with an additional Teen Leader planning meeting before each café.
There are no rules for how frequently or at what times Cafés are held, but typically Teen Science Cafés are offered once per month during the academic year.
You can find information about existing cafés here (https://teensciencecafe.org/directory/map/) and/or join the network by requesting membership access (info here: https://teensciencecafe.org/start/cafe-membership/).
Outcome of the Activity:
Students will engage with peers and STEM experts in lively conversations and activities about science and technology.
