Welcome to Teen Science Cafe - St. Louis Region!
What Is Teen Science Cafe?
Teen Science Café is a free, fun way for teens to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Stimulating conversations with scientists, engineers, and inventors take place in an informal and relaxed setting. Free food is served!
The program is run by teens for teens at central locations in Cahokia and St. Louis. It was inspired by the adult Café Scientifique programs that have become popular throughout the world.
All teens are welcome at any Café, and we are always looking for energetic Youth Leaders to help guide and organize the Café meetings.

ZOMBIES ARE HERE!!!
You may have seen shows recently about people hoarding supplies for the end of the world. You may even think that these people are crazy. But are they?
In this cafe, Dr. Terri Rebmann from SLU will look at the very real nature of bioterrorism, infectious diseases, and disaster preparedness with an end-of-the-world zombie twist. You'll learn how people interact with diseases, how to take the right precautions against them, and even to how to make your own family disaster plan in case of a bioterrorist attack, epidemic, or a zombie apocalypse. Come expand your braaaaains with us!
