NACLO Linguistics Olympiad at Yale
Are you a student with a knack for languages, logic and computational thinking? Would you like to try your hand at deciphering an ancient script or deducing the logical patterns of Swahili or Hawaiian? If so, then you should participate in NACLO!
NACLO stands for the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad and is a contest open to all high school and upper middle school students. In NACLO, you try your hand at solving linguistics problems drawn from a variety of languages. Only logic and reasoning skills are necessary; no prior knowledge of particular languages or linguistics is required.
The Yale Department of Linguistics will be hosting 4 training sessions for students interested in NACLO where you can try your hand at some practice puzzles and develop skills and strategies for solving NACLO problems. Go here for more information about NACLO at Yale, and here to register for the upcoming training sessions.
East Rock Record Journalism Program
On Wednesday afternoons, students in grades 3 through 8 at East Rock School meet to work on their school newspaper as part of the New Haven Student Journalism Project. The project helps students learn about the craft and power of journalism by producing a real newspaper, which gets distributed to students and families at the school and throughout the city of New Haven. With the support of Yale undergraduate and high school mentors, students investigate and report on some of the most important stories of the day. Reporters have written about gun violence, the economy, school uniform policies, a proposed sugar tax, the use of social media in schools, and cyber crime. For each issue, student reporters hold “press conferences” with prominent New Haven figures, including Mayor Toni Harp and FBI Special Agent in Charge Patricia Ferrick.
