The Member Workshop is this Month
Planning is in full swing for our upcoming workshop. One of the preparatory activities is that each member attending the workshop is creating a blog post and video about their Café. Even if you are unable to attend, please join the fun by reading the blog posts on and watching the videos on Twitter under #teensciencecafe. 

Be there - Virtually!
Can't make it to St. Louis for the Member Workshop? Don't sweat it, you can still be a part of it! We will be posting updates to Facebook, tweeting about our activities under #tscnworkshop, and posting follow-up discussions to our forum after the meeting. If you haven't liked us or if you don't follow us, do it now so you don't miss out!

We Want to See YOUR Face
We love to see pictures and hear news about your cafés, teen leaders, and scientists. Send us your best photos of the season and we will feature them on our website.
Call for Evaluation Tools
As you know, evaluation is an important piece of the Teen Café puzzle. How do you tell whether the teens have enjoyed themselves, learned, and will return? What can e done to improve? This will be the focus of one session at the workshop and we plan to share the information with each of you. To help us with this session, please send us digital copies of your evaluation forms so that we can compare and contrast them in the session and then provide them as a new resource for all Members on our website. We plan to discuss and share them at the workshop, so please send them by January 15. Thanks!
Have you checked the Forum recently?
There are new forum topics being posted in preparation for the workshop, but we'd generally like to have an active forum to help strengthen our network. Many interesting topics of discussion have been posted in the last few days including: Who develops hands-on activities for YOUR cafés? What are some ways you motivate students to take action between cafés? Are after-school cafés as highly valued as evening cafés? 

Please visit the forum often and jump in on the conversation. Your voice is important to us!
