Lead Institution: Culture & Heritage Museums: Museum of York County, Rock Hill (York County), South Carolina
In September of 2017, Museum of York County became the first Teen Science Cafe Network host site for the state of South Carolina. We offer FREE, FUN monthly events through York County’s Teen Science Café!
We are creating an opportunity for teens to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) topics and careers in the piedmont of the Carolinas. Located between Charlotte, NC and Columbia, SC, we are in a perfect place for students to meet up!
We have a plethora of scientists, business professionals, educators and artists from which to draw knowledge and inspiration. We are partnering with the York County Public Library (Rock Hill Branch) to encourage teens to step into leadership roles within their very own Teen Science Cafe. These teens will not only participate in the science cafes; they will actually commit to run them.
If you are a private, public or home schooled high school student and love STEAM, please come join us at our next Teen Science Cafe!
