Event description: 

They are too small to see, but constantly affect our lives. They help to make bread, cheese, fuel and medicine. They play a part in getting us sick and keeping us healthy. They are microbes!  On Yale’s West Campus we study how microbes do all of these things and more. Come learn about microbes through hands-on experiences baking bread, diagnosing disease, modeling a flu pandemic, and even designing your own custom bacterium.  In the process, you’ll be able to tour Yale West Campus and talk to scientists about how they solve problems. Come join us for a day of science, festivities, and prizes! Lunch is included. Registration required at

Parents can drop off students directly at Yale’s West Campus or students can take a shuttle from the Peabody parking lot (corner of Whitney Avenue & Humphrey Street) at 8:30am.

Free admission. Open to Yale Pathways to Science students.
