Teen Science Café Girls

By March 9, 2018Uncategorized

The Teen Science Café (TSC) programme, organised by the Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes (Ministry for Education and Employment, Malta), is a STEM popularisation initiative targeting Year 8 students in secondary schools. The aim is to offer young teenage students opportunities to encounter a number of professionals from different STEM-related careers and engage in conversation about relevant STEM themes and career paths in an informal setting. The TSC programme has evolved in the Teen Science Cafe Girls event, which aims at offering female students an interactive and informative exchange with female professionals in STEM, in order to enable dialogue and empower female students to purse STEM careers. This fosters an increased interest in STEM subjects and contributes towards gender parity in STEM disciplines.
