Volunteering

Are you a high school student, college student, or scientist 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 2018-2019 academic year. The fourth and final session - The Robotic World - will be held Saturday, April 6th, and we need you! In this session, middle school girls will learn all about robots and simple machines - they will participate in hands on activities and hear from dynamic 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.
