Virtual teen cafes address diverse scientific topics

A weekly series of virtual teen science cafés will introduce students in grades 7-12 to a diversity of topics ranging from living robots and environmental health to nanotechnology and climate change.

University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H will host VTeen Science Exploration! every Wednesday from 3:30-4:45 p.m. from Sept. 16-Dec. 16. Each café gives teens an opportunity to explore a different scientific topic and interact with scientists and experts in that field to learn about their work.

All cafés are free, although preregistration is required to get the Zoom meeting link. Full program details and registration links can be found at

If you have questions or to request a disability-related accommodation to participate, contact Lauren Traister, UVM Extension 4-H Teen and Leadership Program coordinator, at (802) 888-4972, ext. 402, or
