MI – X-Small Tech Café (Ypsilanti District Library)

Lead Institution: Ypsilanti District Library, Ypsilanti, Michigan

The cafe is being organized as a collaborative effort between the Ypsilanti District Library and a local alternative high school, Work Skills Corps (WSC). As the teen librarian and one of two facilitators, I serve as the outreach person to the alternative high school by offering X-Small STEAM Café as something they may get involved in after school.  We offer exploratory science cafés like Forensic and Physical Science where speakers come in; we hope to offer field trip opportunities as well. Ypsilanti District Library supports the idea of teens leading teens in science.
