By The Staff

Local teens laughed, brainstormed and ate pizza during Monday’s Caf Scientifique meeting at UNM-LA. President Michelle Hall, Ph.D., of Science Education Solutions in Los Alamos, is spearheading the new program funded by the National Science Foundation.Cafs Scientifiques are spreading across the globe and bringing people from all walks of life together to explore, discuss, and debate the latest ideas in science and technology in a social context.Hall is setting up Cafs in Los Alamos, Espaola/ Pojoaque, Santa Fe and Albuquerque. While other Caf Scientifique programs are geared toward adults, the local program is the first in the country devoted solely to teenagers.“The National Science Foundation funded us to see if this type of program would engage teens in science, engineering and technology issues and increase their knowledge and appreciation of the role they play in our world,” Hall said. “The second goal is to encourage civil discourse and critical thinking about complex science issues in the news. I have told the kids they are making a program that will ultimately be exported to the other 50 states.
