Teen Science Café
The STEM field is vast. The Bakken Museum is hosting Teen Science Cafés to introduce high school aged students with the broad range of careers related to science and engineering. These events are free and organized by teens, for teens to have an interactive conversation with STEM professionals, learn about their work, and engage with their discipline through hands on activities.
The Bakken Museum is a member of the Teen Science Café Network, a nation-wide web of organizations connecting high schoolers with STEM experts since 2012.
