  • Welcome to Open Labs — A fellowship of graduate and professional students devoted to educating and mentoring young scholars, and encouraging them to pursue careers in the sciences. We focus on 6-12th grade students, because this is a crucial time in their development of critical thinking and empirical skills that will propel them towards science careers.

    What is an Open Labs Science Café?  Open Labs hosts the Café, a series of outreach events, presentations and breakout sessions, featuring bite-sized talks on cutting-edge research. These short presentations are given by Open Labs Graduate Student Fellows and cover a wide variety of scientific fields (Biology, Physics, Sociology, Medicine, Neuroscience, Astronomy, etc.). Through the talks, we place the students in the shoes of a young professional scientist and and help them discover how research is done, and why we choose to devote our lives to it. During Café breakout groups, students interested in pursuing a topic further are led through a guided discussions.
