Psychology 9th-12th

In Let’s Get Psyched About Psychology, students will be introduced to the fundamental foundations of psychology. Students will explore and apply basic psychological principles, including personality, sensation and perception, memory, stages of psychological development, understanding of self, relationships with others, and interactions with social groups. For their final project, campers will select one of the concepts covered throughout the course to develop and conduct their own psychology experiment.

The course will be interactive, using hands-on activities such as inversion goggles and optical illusions to discuss how we “see” with our brain, a taste lab (yum!) to learn about our chemical senses, and memory games (with strategies to improve memory).

Campers will explore personality theories to find their strengths and growth areas as a way to better understand themselves and their current relationships, and even use it as a tool to consider future majors and career opportunities. We will also use stories, current events, discussions, and "what if" scenarios to apply the principles of social psychology. Lastly, we will look at how advances in technology and the introduction of positive psychology have given us greater insight into our behaviors and thought processes. For their final project, campers will select one of the concepts covered throughout the course to develop and conduct their own psychology experiment."
