A partnership among three aquaria. The Florida Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE-FL), the St. Petersburg Ocean Team, and the Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Sarasota counties school districts implements the Teen Café model with a marine science theme.
At Mote Marine Lab, our high school interns present this Florida Teen Science Café. Florida Teen Science Cafés are free, informal events for teens focusing on marine science. Each meeting welcomes a local scientist to share their work with students. Subject matter is geared for 9th–12th grade students. Cafés are often held at the Selby Public Library.
