Updates for AY 2020-21

At this time, Fall 2020 in-person Junior Science Cafes have been cancelled. We are working to deliver the same high quality programming and support to our field trip groups while following health and safety recommendations from state and local authorities. We will offer a series of virtual modules in the fall. Please email Dulce.Enriquez@msichicago.org with questions or to reserve a virtual session.

Jr. Science Cafés

Students can meet STEM professionals and talk with them about their career paths and their personal journeys into science.

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

During conversations and hands-on activities, your students will get a unique experience that mirrors real-world experience in a STEM career. Each 30-minute session is an exciting opportunity for your students to hear personal stories from a scientist or engineer and dive deeper into the possibility of pursuing a pathway to STEM. 

Best for students in grades 4 through 12. Capacity is 35 students.

There is no additional charge for these Jr. Science Café sessions, but they must be reserved. To reserve a session, email Dulce Enriquez or call (773) 753-1766.
