The brand new Sciencia:Blue Hill Teen Science Cafe has chosen 6-8pm as the optimal time to allow for all the after- school sports and other activities on their calendars. The only day the YLT members can all get together is on Sundays.
One of our timing issues has to do with being in rural Maine where it takes some time to get anywhere – especially in the winter. We are also focused on making the cafes an off-campus, non-school event.I will write again when we find out whether this works and whether teens will actually go home and then return to town for an evening cafe when the thermometer registers minus 5 degrees!
