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.

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.
