“In working with the presenters, writing announcements, planning and administering hands-on activities, and emceeing the café events, our Café Coordinator group truly makes these programs a by-teens, for-teens experience. They develop valuable leadership and career skills including public speaking, event coordination, education, customer service and much more. They develop a deep appreciation for science communication and it has been a privilege to watch these students grow, push themselves beyond their comfort zones, develop confidence and delve deeper into their scientific interests.”
