The annual citywide science fair is held in May at Yale University’s Commons. In conjunction with the science fair event, the New Haven Science Fair Program offers mentoring for students and professional development for teachers on investigative hands-on science fair projects that promote skills in critical thinking, the scientific process, and research communication. In 2015, more than 7,000 New Haven students and 43 schools participated, utilizing more than 160 volunteers for mentoring and judging. The program also supports Family Science Nights.
