Junior Science Cafe: An opportunity to bring science to life. It’s an informal discussion, with the purpose of exploring topics and creating a comfortable space for kids to talk about science and technology stuff that matters to them, not just what’s in the school curriculum. It’s about connecting teen age culture with science because science is a part of everyday life.
Junior Science Cafe’s target audience is students in middle through high school, because they like to ponder cool concepts with a science professional who speaks their language. Students get to question a practicing scientist and speak to them as equals. What the cafe brings is the idea that science is not about being a geek, and it isn’t something that goes on primarily in the classroom.
