Las Cruces Teen Science Café is a free, fun way for teens to explore the latest and greatest ideas in science and technology. Meet professional scientists, engineers, and explorers in an informal environment. Plus, free food!
The cafes are run by teens for teens at the Las Cruces Museum of Nature & Science and NMSU’s Gardiner Hall. Inspired by the adult Science Café programs that are popular all over the world, Teen Science Café gives students an opportunity to explore their interests and careers in the sciences.
Students in grades 6-12 are welcome at any Café, and we are always looking for high school students to join the Teen Leadership Team to help plan and run the Cafés.
