Join us for our Virtual Science Festival
The COVID-19 pandemic kept Y.A.L.E. School from hosting our annual Science Festival in person this year – so we moved it online!
Join us on Wednesday, June 10 at 3 p.m. for a very special virtual Science Festival. All students across all Y.A.L.E. campuses are invited to watch and participate.
The Science Festival will feature:
- Science demonstrations and a hands-on experiment you can do at home – all you need is milk, food coloring and dish soap!
- Individual and class projects from the students of Y.A.L.E. School
- Interviews with science project winners
This year’s Science Festival is also going to feature some very special guests – don’t miss informational and fun presentations:
- Sarah Latyn, MBS, an entomologist (a scientist who studies insects) from BedBug Central
- Dave Frank, an apiculturist (beekeeper) at Turtle Creek in Springfield Township
- Danielle Moyer, a volcanologist (a scientist who studies volcanoes) in the Department of Biodiversity, Earth and Environmental Science at Drexel University
How to Watch:

On YouTube: We will post the link to watch here on our website and on our social media channels at 3 p.m.
