• Harvard Open Labs

    GSAS Open Labs At Harvard is a graduate student group that simultaneously develops communication and organization skills, and serves the community through scientific outreach for the graduate students involved. These goals will primarily be accomplished through quarterly Science Café events to be held at the Harvard Science Center. These events will allow graduate students in GSAS from a wide range of STEAM disciplines to share their current research through short TED-like talks aimed at middle through high school students in the Boston area. The audience will have the opportunity to speak with the graduate student presenters on a more individualized basis after the talks to learn about their perspective going through school and becoming involved in cutting edge research. These talks will be tailored for students at a crucial time in the development of their empirical and critical thinking skills and the presentations themselves will serve as indispensable professional development for the graduate students as they prepare for a career in academia or industry.
