Demos, an undergraduate volunteer organization at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, is dedicated to educating local elementary students in the basic sciences while showing that science is both fun and accessible. We have a long history in the New Haven and Yale communities and are proud to be one of Yale?s most respected educational organizations. We offer a wide variety of programs. In fact, during the late ?80s and early ?90s local school standards did not mandate that science be taught in elementary schools, and so for nearly a decade, thousands of New Haven elementary students were only exposed to science through Demos.
Classroom volunteering Direct Service We plan hands-on science experiments for New Haven elementary schools (grades ranging from 3-5, occasionally as young as kindergarten or as old as sixth grade) organized into modules to teach students about overarching scientific principles, such as the human body and chemical reactions.
