Teen Science Cafés

Teen Science Cafés are opportunities for teens to talk with local scientists and researchers about current and cutting-edge ideas in science and technology, all in a relaxed and informal setting. Teen Science Cafés are free to attend, feature free snacks and hands-on activities, and are run by teens for teens in their local community.

Join The Team!
The Teen Science Café Leadership Team is a great way for teenagers to get involved with the planning and event process that occurs when designing and implementing the Teen Science Cafés. Volunteer applications will be available in August and all teens interested in a leadership role in the program are encouraged to apply.


Upcoming Dates

Teen Science Cafés for the 2014-2015 school year have not begun yet. Check back again in August for specifics on the events, venues, and dates.


These programs are a special teen-focused version (ie; adults not allowed) of our regular Science Cafés, which are open to all ages and presented in partnership with KCTS 9 Public Television.

Teen Science Cafés are part of a network of teen science cafes across the country funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
