Homewood Science Center offers Science Café virtual sessions for junior high students

The Homewood Science Center is offering a way for junior high students to expand their interest in science through its Summer Science Cafes on Tuesdays, July 6 and July 13.

These free programs have students join a Google Meets virtual session led by University of Chicago Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering graduate students for a 30-minute discussion.

The 2 p.m. July 6 program will be “Material Interactions” led by Alvin Dai and Tony Pan, and the 11 a.m. July 13 program will be “Light Refraction and Lenses” led by Shankar Menon.

Students will be involved in hands-on activities that reinforce the message presented in each session.

These are the final two programs in a five-part series. Edie Dobrez, executive director of the Homewood Science Center, said the response has been great. Of the 25 participants in the June programs, 17 were from Homewood and Flossmoor.
