Pathways Summer Scholars

Pathways Summer Scholars is a free two-week summer science day program for 100 rising tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade Yale Pathways to Science Students. Each summer, Pathways Summer Scholars will have the opportunity to select from a variety of STEM workshops collaboratively designed and taught by Yale faculty and graduate students. Workshops include, but are not limited to, Musical Acoustics & Instrumentation Design, Decoding Biology to Code New Materials, Disorders of the Brain, Plant Form & Evolution, Exploring the Physics of Light, The Chemistry of Energy, Model Organisms in Biology, and Learning about the Brain with Bugs. Rising high school seniors take part in a residential program, living in the Yale student dormitories and taking part in college preparatory programming in addition to attending STEM workshops during the day. Current Yale undergraduates serve as teaching assistants and mentors in the program. Pathways to Science Summer Scholars is open to current Pathways to Science students who attend a New Haven, West Haven, or Orange Public School.
