Teen Science Cafés is a STEM popularisation initiative targeting Form I and II students in secondary schools. The aim is to offer young teenage students opportunities to encounter a number of professionals/experts from different STEM related careers. The professionals/experts from different fields of science will visit a number of schools throughout the first two terms of scholastic year 2015/2016, to share their career insights related to STEM. The focus will be an interactive, informal exchange between students and the professional/s to engage young students in conversation about relevant STEM themes and career paths in an informal setting, thus impacting positively on student’s study and career choices. The Teen Science Cafés will primarily serve as an outreach exercise in terms of promoting careers in science and technology. This facilitates improved careers’ guidance and interest in studying STEM subjects.
