Calling all teens -- let's explore current science!
Want to talk with scientists about their work? Meet other teens who like science as much as you do? Share your ideas and learn what others think, too?
Open Minds Cafe is for you! This new program is just for young adults, ages 13-18, and it's free! No registration is required. Please enter the building through the Visitors Center (west end of the building) to find the cafe location.
Each Open Minds Cafe program begins at 5:30 p.m. with pizza (or another treat), followed by discussions and activities at 6 p.m. The program may end at any time from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., depending on the scheduled activities.
To present Open Minds Cafe, Morehead is partnering with the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, which presents Open Minds Cafe programming in Raleigh. These teen science events are funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation with additional support from Time Warner Cable.
