Black Creativity Junior Science and Art Cafes

Discover what it's really like to be a scientist, engineer or artist!

African American artists and STEM professionals share their career with students through hands-on activities and meaningful conversations. Each 30-minute session is an exciting opportunity for students to hear personal stories from a scientist, artist or engineer who looks like them and dive deeper into the possibility of pursuing a pathway into STEM or the arts.

Capacity is 35 students. This program is best for students in grades 4 through 8. There is no additional charge for these sessions, but they must be reserved. Please email  Dulce Enriquez or call (773) 753-1766 to learn more about booking Jr. Science or Art Café sessions.
