SITN call for Speakers, Coordinators, and Video Editors!

September 14, 2021

Are you interested in science communication? Are you looking for a chance to talk about science to a live audience? Do you want to improve your communication and public speaking skills? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then audition for our 12th annual Science in the News talk series, where we communicate science at local libraries and community centers in our local New Haven community and beyond! 


We are hosting auditions on September 24th, September 27th, September 30th, and October 4th on Science Hill and Med Campus. Auditions will be held in person, though if you have extenuating circumstances, we can accommodate a Zoom audition. Please email Lizzy Nand at for more information.


These auditions are casual; we want to get an idea of what topics you’re interested in speaking about and get to know you as a speaker! You will present a 5 minute talk about any science topic of your choosing. If you want to talk about it, we want to hear about it! Sign onto our Yale Connect page for sign-up sheets. 


Interested in getting involved with us in a non-speaking role? Then sign up to be a Coordinator! Coordinators provide feedback to the speakers to help them create their talk. In this role you can also attend the auditions to learn more about our talk series. If you are interested in this position, please fill out the interest form on our Yale Connect page, and we will contact you with additional information.


Are you interested in video editing? If so, we record plenty of videos throughout the year that get posted to our YouTube. If you are interested in editing these videos, please contact Lizzy Nand at lizzy.nand@yale.eduNo experience required!
