Event description: 

Have you ever opened up an old computer or cell phone and looked at the circuits inside? Have you thought about what all those little parts do? In this session, we’ll make paper circuits and play with resistors, light bulbs, LEDs and more. Come join us and make an interactive card for your favorite Valentine and a buzzing game to play with your friends! Snacks and lunch will be served. 

The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI) is to motivate empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. University students and professors act as mentors and provide a context for exploring and understanding the various disciplines of science through hands-on activities in a laboratory environment. Through student scientific-engagement and parental awareness, GSI strives to close the gap in science found between males and females today.

 

Girls’ Science Investigations is limited to 6th to 8th grade girls. Pathways Scholars receive priority, but any middle school girl can join! Lunch and snacks are included. Registration to open in January at gsi.yale.edu
