The Yale Interpreter Network (YIN) provides high-quality, pro-bono interpretation and translation services to bridge the gap between Limited English Proficient community members and social services. The immigrant community often faces language barriers when seeking services like mental health care and legal assistance. Many organizations would like to accommodate this community but often lack the resources to do so. Time commitment can be anywhere from once a year to once a week, and you will make a significant impact in our community. Please complete this form if you’re interested in participating and contact yale.interpreter.network@gmail.com with any questions. https://forms.gle/XorJZvYuFt78wSMi6

The Flipped Science Fair (FSF) will be holding information sessions (12/1 and 12/3) to generate interest and recruit presenters for virtual events in the spring! Please join us for an info session, where you will learn about the FSF and begin to distill your research message to effectively communicate with a broad audience. RSVP here: bit.ly/fsfinfo2021.

The FSF flips the traditional science fair format on its head: middle school student judges evaluate graduate students and postdocs presenting their current research in all aspects of STEM and social sciences. In our virtual format, two presenters go head to head in a friendly science battle and the student audience decides the winner! Workshops leading up to the event help presenters tailor their research pitch to a general audience, with emphasis on keeping things exciting, understandable, and relevant.

Info session dates and times are as follows:
Tuesday, 12/1, 10 AM - 11 AM
Thursday, 12/3, 7 PM - 8 PM

Please feel free to reach out to Richard Crouse with any questions.
