Exploring Science with Yale Scientists

Join us every Tuesday at 6pm on Zoom for a discussion with Yale scientists about the subjects they love! Learn about their pathway to science, their field of interest, and how in the world they actually study it! Each session will involve either a battle between 2 scientists, a Q&A about science careers, or talks by a couple of scientists sharing their work. Visit our page to learn more and view videos of past events!

Yale Pathways to Science: Public Health Virtual Adventure!

Did you know the first week of April is National Public Health Week? Are you interested in exploring the many pathways to public health studies and careers? The Yale School of Public Health has put together an exciting set of online materials and videos about this broad area of STEM. Click here to learn how public health is everywhere.

Ask a Yale Environmental Expert - The Value of Trees

The Yale Urban Resource Initiative is hosting a weekly “Ask a Yale Environmental Expert” virtual series designed to engage local high school students, teachers, and families to learn about environmental topics directly from Yale scientists. 

Pathways' SheCode!

In February, 2020, Pathways to Science high school girls joined Yale computer science majors for the fifth annual SheCode spring series! Students spent four Sunday mornings exploring Python computer language. They learn advanced coding techniques, developed their own applications, and developed a team-based final project. A pizza lunch celebration ended the series. Thanks to all our Yale undergraduate volunteers! We will see you in the fall!

Girls’ Science Investigations: The Electronic World

During the February 2020  session of the series, middle school participants made paper circuits and played with resistors, light bulbs, LEDs, and more. They made interactive cards for Valentine’s Day and a buzzing game to play with their friends. 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. 

MOSAIC: Utopia...Imagine a Perfect City

Where would a perfect city be located? What laws would a perfect city have? How much of its resources would the city devote to supporting literature and the arts? On Saturday December 7th, New Haven students and families worked with Citizens-Thinkers-Writers fellows and professors to discuss topics philosophers and writers started thousands of years ago. Students learned that even with a blank slate, designing a perfect city was not as easy as it seemed. MOSAIC (Minds on Society, Arts, Ideas, and Culture) is a special lecture series designed to share the work of Yale faculty in the arts and humanities with the community.

Ophthalmology Day 2020

In February, our Pathways High School students had a blast at this year’s Ophthalmology Day! Students were joined by the Ophthalmology Department and the Yale League of Black Scientists to learn about how the eye moves and functions. Activities included VR sessions exploring eye anatomy, hands-on dissections, and demos with slit lamp machines. In addition, the Yale League of Black Scientists hosted an informative panel discussion on how to prepare for and transition to college. Special thanks to all our volunteers who made this event so fun and informative!
