New Haven Science Fair

This year’s Science Fair will take place May 12-14, 2014 at University Commons, Yale University.


The 2014 New Haven Science Fair is looking for volunteers to mentor New Haven public school students Pre-K through 12th grade with their science fair experiments.

Mentors typically volunteer once a week, for 1hr to 1.5hr, depending on their availability.  They will work in the classroom with teachers helping students understand the scientific method. Students and teachers need help in the early stages of researching and defining their projects, and to recognize the reality of what is a manageable, beneficial, and applicable research project.

There are currently 5 open assignments where teachers are eagerly waiting for mentors’ guidance. If you are able and interested to help any one of them, please contact Soen Tien at
