Last month, Pathways students and families joined us for another Science Café event co-hosted by Open Labs. In addition to exciting demonstrations and presentations, rock star graduate students got to tell our scholars about their research over snacks, cookies, hot cocoa, and coffee. This Science Café featured talks about extinct worlds that have existed here on earth, how we can keep this earth habitable, and how we can search for exoplanets that we may be able to live on in the far future!
Flipped Science Fair 2018
On October 13th, Yale Science Diplomats hosted the Flipped Science Fair for middle school students. This unique and educational event flips the traditional science fair format on its head: middle school student judges evaluate graduate students and postdocs presenting their current research. Middle school students learn about cuttingedge research from real Yale scientists in a small-group setting, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and participate in hands-on demonstrations. The presenters learn how to tailor their research pitch to a general audience, with emphasis on keeping things exciting, understandable, and relevant.
MOSAIC: Mechanical Horses, Galactic Sinbads and Other Unexpected Tales: Exploring the Astonishing Wonders of Classical Literature of the Middle East
Fantasy, science fiction and superheroes have never been more popular. From Black Panther to Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, our appetite for make-believe adventures is insatiable. Did you know classical literature of the Middle East was the source of much early European Sci-Fi writing? In Arabic and Persian, we find stories of mechanical horses that fly, galactic explorations and underwater civilizations. On Saturday, December 8th we’ll explore some of these astonishing stories and see a special presentation about the historical roots of today’s fantasy and Sci-Fi craze. Facilitated by Abdul-Rehman Malik, Postgraduate Associate, Council on Middle East Studies at Yale. For more information and to register visit: onhsa.yale.edu/MOSAIC
Yale gradSWE Engineering Day

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.
