SWE Outreach: Programmable Gardens

December 2016

We loved getting to work with high school students to build a “programmable garden”. The students programmed an arduino to automate the watering of a plant through a humidity sensor.

Yale SWE Attends National Conference

October 2016

12 members of SWE attended the WE16 national SWE conference in Philadelphia PA. The event was inspiring and productive for all who attended! We’re excited to report that our section received two awards! Additionally, all of the undergraduate members who attended received interviews—and many currently have internship or job offers!

Storytelling Workshop

October 2016

Have you ever wondered why TED talks are fascinating, how Hollywood draws from millennia-old story principles, and why stories are key to becoming unforgettable and creating connection?

GradSWE was delighted to host a storytelling workshop by author and award-winning PBS filmmaker Charles Vogl, who gave a two hour interactive workshop for over 40 students! 

GradSWE Froyo Social

Yale SWE Receives Charter

February 2016

The Yale SWE section received its charter at the Region F Conference hosted at West Point on Saturday, February 27.  This was the culmination of more than a year of work by the Yale SWE section and represents the growth of SWE at Yale over the past 3 years.  Without the dedication and hard work of both our grad and undergrad members, this would have been impossible.  


August 2015

SWE and WISAY (Women in Science at Yale) joined forces to host a BBQ for our members.  Drawing attendees from across the STEM fields at Yale, a fun time was had by all!  

Bring a Boy to SWE - Gender Bias Workshop

February 2015

Eva Pietri led a discussion on gender bias in STEM that was attended by students from across the STEM disciplines at Yale.  She presented research on implicit bias and showed some short movie clips that she has helped to create.  These videos, which dramatize situations where gender bias comes to the fore, are designed to help combat implicit bias by helping viewers to become aware of it.  After her presentation, she led a lively discussion about gender bias.
