Staff Report

Café Scientifique kick off its season Tuesday evening on the campus of UNM-Los Alamos. The popular program brings teens from all walks of life together to explore, discuss and debate the latest ideas in science and technology. Stimulating conversations with experts working on the cutting-edge of scientific research take place in a social setting. It is a place where all teens are welcome and ideas are shared.

Cafés take place in Los Alamos, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Española/Pojoaque.

The Café program is for, and is run by, high school age teens. Motivated teens from the four participating towns have volunteered to play a leadership role in organizing and running the Café program as members of the Teen Leadership Team. The Café Project Team is there to support them. This dedicated group of teens is the heart of the program, and the key to its success. Any teen is welcome to be on the leadership teams and to participate in the Café meetings.
