The Museum of York County will begin hosting a monthly York County Teen Science Café for high school students from across York County, SC in the fall of 2017.

What is a Teen Science Café?

Why offer a Science Café?
Teens are curious and want to explore relevant, exciting advances in science, technology, engineering, art and math affecting their daily lives, and they like to socialize around food. This STEAM outreach to teens began in the fall of 2017, as the first affiliate of the national Teen Science Café Network to open in South Carolina!

Where does it meet?
Museum of York County hosts a free, monthly York County Teen Science Café for high school students from across York County, SC.Additional opportunities for leadership and networking occur as teens join the advisory team that meets monthly at the Rock Hill branch of the York County Library. The York County Library is a partner with the museum in hosting these café experiences.

Who can come?
High school teens (9th -12th grades). Public, private and homeschool students are welcome to attend! Educators are also welcome to attend!

How can I get involved?
Teens choose to lead alongside adult mentors in all aspects of running this event, such as choosing topics, greeting participants, enabling set-up, choosing food, introducing the presenter, planning a correlated activity and cleaning up. Monthly meetings are held in the early evening, on one Thursday a month at the Museum of York County. Come check us out!
