Exhibits & Programs

Great programs run by teens for teens in their local community.

Teen Science Cafés

Teen Science Cafés are opportunities for teens to talk with local scientists and researchers about current and cutting-edge ideas in science and technology, all in a relaxed and informal setting. Teen Science Cafés are free to attend, feature free snacks and hands-on activities, and are run by teens for teens in their local community. Follow Pacific Science Center’s Teen Science Cafés on Facebook and Instagram.

These programs are a special teen-focused version (ie; adults not allowed) of our regular Science Cafés, which are open to all ages. For questions about Teen Science Cafés or its leadership team, teensciencecafe@pacsci.org.
