The goal of the Kidís Café is to get children interested in learning about science, and here is how we hope to accomplish this goal at each meeting. The children start out in the same room with the adults at the Science Café during the snack time and through the opening video. After the video, the guest expert for the Science Café is introduced, and we offer the children the opportunity to ask him or her one question (if they are not too shy). Afterward, the children are dismissed to an adjacent room where the Kidís Café has its own separate activities. Meanwhile, the parents enjoy an adult-level science discussion with a real scientist. At the end of the evening when parents and children go home, they will have an excellent opportunity to enjoy good quality time together as they share with each other about what they learned.
We hope to have some special speakers for our Kidís Café come in to talk to the children regarding their area of science expertise on the childrenís level. We are currently looking for individuals who might be interested in doing this.
