Teen STEM Café: Whale Sharks

Mon. April 30, 2018 - Mon. April 30, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Texas State Aquarium’s Teen STEM Café, Making Waves, offers Coastal Bend teens an opportunity to engage in current science topics in a fun and casual setting.

Each month, teens will explore a new science topic and career pathways. Topics and presenters are identified by our Teen Leadership Team, which helps us guide the program and run the events.   Through interactive topic introductions, demonstrations, and discussions, teens and professionals together will explore the science, technology, engineering, and math endeavors that are shaping our blue planet. Teen STEM Cafés are held at the Texas State Aquarium, and they are free and open to any high school teen.

The Making Waves Teen STEM Café is part of a national network of Teen Science Cafes. For more information about the program, visit https://teensciencecafe.org/ .


This month, connect virtually with whale shark researchers in Hawaii and learn how they use photo identification to study the population.
