Girls’ Science Investigations is a free program for girls in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade who are interested in learning more about science. All sessions run from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm (with lunch and snacks provided to the students) in Sloane Physics Lab, 217 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511.
Did you know that there is a connection between a rainbow and your reflection in a mirror? You can produce your own 3D images and write secret messages that can only be read using certain colored filters. Learn about light and color through your own hands-on investigations. See how light can be used to make electric currents flow. Play with optical illusions and make your own puzzling pictures. There is lots of fun to be had with the light!
Did you know you can’t hear anything in space? Do you know how your ear works to hear things? Learn why and more! See the same sounds you hear on an oscilloscope!

(tentative) The Electronics World
Shake, rattle, and roll is the action for today as we learn about the forces that move the earth’s crust. Have fun with “Seismic Slinkies”. Then, build an earthquake proof model house that can withstand the force of the Yale SHAKE table!
Students will have the opportunity to observe faculty run demonstrations, as well as, participate in hands-on experiments. Please call (203) 432-3650 with any questions or concerns.
Inspiring the girls of today to shape the science of tomorrow.
