Psychology staff and PhD students to run after-school psychology club

Wed Dec 09 11:39:00 GMT 2015

Dr Susanna Martin, a postdoctoral researcher at the University’s CREATE Lab, has been invited by a local primary school to run psychology activities over nine weeks with Year 5 and 6 pupils. The club will conclude with the children taking part in the University’s ‘Bath Taps into Science’ showcase in March, allowing them to teach others what they have learnt.

Eleanna Skoulikari, a PhD student who is organising the sessions, said: ‘There’s no better way to learn than having fun, and we aim to introduce psychology and science to the pupils by engaging them in fun activities and simple research projects.’

The initiative will be featured in the January edition of the BPS Psychologist magazine. https://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/volume-29/january-2016/welcome-club
