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.

Time Details: 

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.
