Junior Science café
Science café
A way to female scientists
Junior science cafes are science cafes organised by a group of high school students, with the supervision of two researchers from formaScienza.
The students chose the theme, the guest scientists and the readings. The event is conducted by the students.
Students become protagonists in building knowledge, they develop key skills, first of all the ability to discriminate against reliable scientific information. They become active cultural promoters to their own territory.

In 2009-2012 the project Junior Science Cafè, in the practice of FormaScienza, was considered best practices under the Scicafe project (Seventh European Commission's Quarter Program).

In 2013-2015 the practice of Junior Science Cafè was adopted as a case study for a creative science teaching in the framework of the European CREAT-IT project Implementing Creative Strategies in Science Teaching (Lifelong Learning Program), which spread their guidelines in Europe through international workshops and schools.
