Earlier this year, YSEA members and guests gathered at the Yale Club of New York City for a reception and presentation with Sarah Demers, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Physics at Yale. After hors d'oeuvres were served, the crowd was treated to a discussion of Professor Demers' work on the Higgs boson and her efforts with an extraordinary initiative in New Haven "to motivate, empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science." For more information, please visit the Demers Group website or the Girls Science Investigations website.

A group of guests at the YSEA Metropolitan Meet and Greet enjoying the evening.
Teena-Ann Sankoorikal '96, YSEA's Metropolitan District Vice President, hosted a winter YSEA Meet and Greet at New York City's Sosa Borella restaurant. Topics of discussion ranged from NYC robotics startups, to patent law, to the biotech industry, to environmental sciences, to where to find the best empanadas in midtown. Thanks to Ms. Sankoorikal for organizing the event, and thanks to Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP for sponsoring the evening!
"Look for Yale Engineering at the FIRST Championships this week in St. Louis -- we'll be on Scholarship Row and admitted students will be invited to a reception with the Yale Science and Engineering Association. Alumni and Yale students in the area should contact YSEA to volunteer or attend events. See you in St. Louis! (FIRST alumni currently at Yale pose with Dean Kamen & his mom last week in the Yale Center for Engineering Innovation & Design.)"
