At our next Cafe, meet an MIT researcher and hear about climate science and sustainability action, and participate in fun and interactive sustainability-themed activities.


Past Sessions


Our Teen Science Cafe will kick off with a talk by PhD candidate Chloé Gentgen, who will discuss her work in engineering space systems for deep-space robotic exploration, followed by a Q&A session.

Participants will then move to our Learning Labs, where several aerospace-themed activities will take place including mini-rocket making, a paper plane competition, and solar rover engineering.
