When the snow and ice melt or a storm hits the area, water fills up our aging sewer system, taking refuse along with it into our waterways and Lake Erie. It's a dirty problem that experts are trying to tackle in a green way.  We'll discuss the Science Cafe topic.  Then how do you teach a teen resilience? A local businessman is partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland to do just that for Cleveland's young people.
