Central Texas Teen Science Café - Teen Leadership Team Application

Teen Science Café is a monthly science program that is free + fun for high school students in the central Texas area. Teens get to socialize over food and have the opportunity to interact with local scientists and engineers in a relaxed setting. Teens are able to talk with the scientists about their career paths and their research. Scientists may even bring along a few of their students, allowing the teens to ask questions about college life. The program ends with a hands-on component, allowing teens to actually try their hand at real science. The Teen Science Café program is a partnership between Baylor University’s Mayborn Museum and the Hewitt Public Library. Teen Science Café programs will be held at both locations throughout the year.

Teen Science Café is organized and run by high school teen volunteers, grades 9-12. Teen leadership volunteers are expected to attend one planning meeting per month, as well as all café meetings. This is a time commitment that should be taken seriously, similar to other extracurricular activities. Teens on the leadership team are also expected to sit on one of the three planning committees.
