The beauty and complexity of the natural world inspires artistic expression of all kinds: art, poetry, music, writing and more. Natural environments can also be a deep source of inspiration for scientists, as they search for solutions. As humans, we face significant challenges – or problems – that are unique to our modern era. However, with the help of scientists, we can overcome these challenges by grounding our innovations 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 our environment is helping us to develop cutting-edge technologies that improve our lives and make the whole planet a better place to be.
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.
