Welcome

Welcome!

The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations 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, Girls’ Science Investigations strives to close the gap in science found between males and females today.

It is a free program for girls in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade who are interested in learning more about science. For 2021-2022 there will be one session via zoom (10am-12pm).


2021-2022 Session

Saturday, December 4, 2021 (via zoom) - The Robotics World

Have you ever wondered how a robot works?  In this session, we will learn how to design, build, and program robots.  We will also explore how robots fit into society, from the home to the medical field.

Come investigate the Robotic World with us! Students will be mailed robot kits and have the chance to learn and build with Yale scientists! The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations is to motivate, empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science.


Students will have the opportunity to observe faculty run demonstrations, as well as, participate in hands-on experiments. Please email lauren.saunders@yale.edu with any questions or concerns or to be added to the email list (please include your daughter’s name and current grade).

Inspiring the girls of today to shape the science of tomorrow.

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

Winning the prize wasn't half as exciting as doing the work itself.
