Teen Science Cafe

Calling all teens: Let’s explore current science!

Want to talk with scientists about their work? Meet other teens who like science as much as you do? Share your ideas and learn what others think, too?

Teen Science Cafe is for you! This program is just for young adults ages 13-18, and it’s free! We’ll gather for a special pizza social, allowing participants to meet each other before the start of the program.

Teen Science Cafe is for teens, by teens. That means that much of the decision-making is done by the Teen Advisory Board.

During our meetings, you’ll help work out what speakers we host, social media strategies, games/trivia, and practice your leadership skills, among other benefits. Members of the Board should expect to meet 2 times per month (including cafes).

Applications to join the 2024-2025 Teen Advisory Board have closed.

Applications will reopen Spring 2025.
