Help your class develop an understanding of Psychology through exploring how our minds work and what causes us to think and behave in the ways we do.

Working with undergraduate students, you will enable your class to explore the senses and how they communicate with the brain. Children will see interactive demonstrations and learn through practical games and experiments.
