At a Teen Science Cafe, teens have the opportunity to interact with science professionals in an informal and relaxed setting. Teen Science Cafe is presented and powered by Junior Academy of Science members.
Have you ever been told that you are “just monkeying around?” What do monkeys act like anyway, and how do scientists study them in the wild? Take a tour down the “tangled jungle path” to primatology and the study of non-human primates in South America in this cafe. Learn what it is like to be out in the field studying tamarins, marmosets, muriquis, and more with Dr. Jennifer Rehg, a primatologist at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. You might even find yourself acting like a monkey, too!
Parents, our teen leaders request that you please plan on waiting in the library or dropping your student off.
