From Yale News…
Since 2012, Yale graduate students have been “talking Science without talking like Scientists” in public library branches across the city of New Haven. These sessions are packed with New Haven residents- young and old alike- who are eager to understand the science that they hear about in the news. Recent topics have included:
Trust your Gut: How helpful Bacteria Impact Health
Hacking the Genetic Code: Editing our Destiny
Ebola Explosion! Barriers, Blood, and Bad Press
Science in the News is a free, public lecture series given by Yale graduate students that aims to educate children and adults of all ages about hot science topics without the jargon getting in the way. They have made science fun and accessible to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds across the city of New Haven.
In recognition of their work to provide people with a better understanding of the science underpinning the complex issues we hear about in the news every day, President Peter Salovey and Board of Alders President Tyisha Walker present Yale Science In the News with a Graduate and Professional School Ivy Award.
