Science Saturdays is a special lecture series designed for families that brings the excitement of research and the passion of scientists to school-age children and adults. Each event involves a lecture by a Yale professor and engaging science demonstrations run by Yale college students. The lectures are free and open to the public and the topics explored are for kids in 7th grade and above. On April 11, 2009 the presentation was “Strange Stuff: From smart materials to nanotechnology” by Professor Ainissa Ramirez, Materials Scientist.
