Demos, an undergraduate service 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.
Science demonstrations at New Haven elementary schools
Groups of 1-2 volunteers visit schools once per week for an hour to take students through different science experiments that teach students about basic science phenomena and encourage them to learn more about science in the future!
