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.


Food Science

During the December Teen Science Café, two food scientists from General Mills will teach participants all about the science that goes into the flavors of the foods that we enjoy. They will have an assortment of activities for us to try, and taste, in order to help us understand just what sort of knowledge scientists and engineers need in order to get that perfect flavor.


Date: December 16, 2018

Time: 2-4 p.m.

Location: The Bakken Museum

Cost: Free! (registration required)
