Yale Science Communication Presents “Modern Problems, Modern Solutions”

June 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Zoom Videoconference

Please join us for this live webinar on Thursday, June 17th at 7:00 pm EST

Join us as scientists from Yale Science Communication discuss how science is tapping into the natural world to develop cutting-edge technologies that improve our lives and make the entire planet a better place to live.


The beauty and complexity of the natural world inspires artistic expression of all kinds.  Natural environments can also be a deep source of inspiration for scientists, as they search for solutions. As humans, we face significant challenges unique to our modern era. However, with the help of scientists, we can overcome these challenges with  innovations grounded in the natural world.

From the atmosphere that envelopes our planet and the aquatic habitats that cover it, to the creatures that share it with us, understanding the environment aids scientists in developing cutting-edge technologies to improve our lives and the health of the planet.

Yale Science Communication is an organization of graduate students and postdoctoral individuals passionate about science communication, education, and advocacy. They deliver talks on current topics in science, ranging from the microbiome to the feasibility of a real-life Jurassic Park. Their goal is to make science fun and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. and provide people with a better understanding of the science underpinning many of the complex issues in the news every day.
