TEEN SCIENCE CAFE IS
ALL ABOUT ZOMBIES
The Teen Science Cafe for ME! Program has announced that its café #5 is about zombies. On Thursday, October 30th, Jamie Wren, recent UMO anthropology graduate, will lead a discussion about the truth and fiction behind zombies. As with all Teen Science Cafes, there will be free food (zombie themed), a presentation, and an activity. All ages welcome, but please remember that this talk is geared for teens, and zombies might be scary for young children. Come in your best zombie attire. The Cafe will be at The Millworks in Dexter (across the street from Bud's Shop ‘n Save) from 6 to 8 PM.
For more information contact asaunders@mmsa.org or visit them on Facebook at The STEM Guides Project -DDG. This work is supported by National Science Foundation grant #1322827.
