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.

On Saturday, October 19th Pathways students and families attended an interactive tour and special behind-the-scenes viewing of Beinecke treasures.
Pathways to Health: “A Day in the Life”
MOSAIC: Bus Boycotts - Rosa Parks and Beyond
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.
Yale gradSWE Engineering Day
