$image_alt.data
Organised by the Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes (DLAP), the Teen Science Café is an initiative aiming to introduce secondary-school students to careers and professions available on the current labour market through conversations with professionals.

Teen Science Café is a STEM initiative targeting students in secondary schools (11-13 y.o. students). The initiative is organised by the Science Centre Malta within DLAP, Ministry for Education and Employment in cooperation with various institutions (including Transport Malta).

The initiative, launched in 2015, aims to offer young teenage students opportunities to encounter a number of professionals/experts from different STEM related careers. This is done in an informal setting, where exchange and discussion is facilitated between students and professionals. The Teen Science Café aims to help teenagers make better informed decisions in their study and career choices, specifically focusing on science and technology careers. By April 2018, around 130 different STEM professionals from various institutions and sectors participated in the events organised within this initiative.
