Teen Science Café out-of-school programs are a free, fun way for teens to explore the big advances in science and technology affecting their lives. Teens and STEM experts engage in lively conversations and activities to explore a topic deeply.
The TSCN can help you get started now.
What is the Teen Science Café Network?
We are a community of practice providing the highest quality resources and support to organizations who implement a teen science café. Our members are committed to help one another and continually improve the teen science café experiences and their impacts.
Imagine there is a really dynamic scientist that has done a TED talk about a very hot topic of interest to teens. Participants could watch the 17 minute TED talk in advance and write down all of their questions, ideas and comments and then have a live chat with the presenter with a national gathering of like-minded teens. This seems more interesting, because the teens could watch the TED talk as many times as they wish, would have lots of time to thing about their questions, and we could potentially have multiple chats with the presenter for the different time zones.
