Delaware Teen Science Café:
Join the Teen Leadership Team

What is the Delaware Teen Science Café?

The Delaware Teen Science Café is designed for teens by teens in our community. High school teen leaders bring teens together in the unique setting of the Delaware Museum of Natural History to engage in STEAM related topics delivered by local experts in the field. Each café will begin with a pizza meet and greet with other teens followed by an informal presentation, a hands-on activity, wrapping up with a questions and answers. This program is specifically designed for ages 11–17.

What is the Teen Leadership Team?

Teens take ownership of the program through the Teen Leadership Team, comprised of high school students in 9th-12th grades. The Teen Leadership Team is responsible for hosting the Delaware Teen Science Cafés. Teen Leadership Team members will select the Café topics and prepare presenters, advertise and draw other teens to the Cafés, build leadership skills, and assist in the planning and implementation of activities related to the Cafés.
