Volunteering

Are you a student or a scientist at Yale interested in inspiring the next generation of female scientists?  Volunteer for Yale Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI) to teach physics principles to local middle school girls!

Based out of the Department of Physics, 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. GSI will have four themed events in the 2017-2018 academic year. The second session - The Floating World - will be held Saturday, November 11th, and we need you! In this session, middle schools girls will learn all about density and buoyancy  - they will participate in hands on activities, and hear from dynamic women scientists! 

Volunteers will be in one of six stations to help run the hands-on demonstration or experiments. Breakfast and lunch are included. See more information below.
