Join us in our new interactive series: Taking Flight Nights: Teen STEAM Cafés at Tracy Aviary!

These events are designed just for teens! Hardworking members of our Teen Advisory Board have invited professionals in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math to share their work through engaging hands-on activities and discussions.

The theme for July 10th will be Water Health. Maura Hahnenberger will lead us in learning all about water quality, including trying out some water quality tests! Check out her bio below.

Gates open at 5:45 pm. Food and fun start at 6:00 pm. Please note that these programs are for ages 13-18.

Participation is free! Please pre-register here to make sure we have enough food for you.
