On Monday 2nd of July, six Lower Sixth Psychology students attended the second annual Psychology Competition held at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Their task: to submit a three-minute video and present an A1 poster answering the question of how psychology can be used to make the world a better place. Twenty-eight teams from around the country competed, offering some interesting and topical answers about plastics, toxic masculinity and neuroplasticity.
One of our teams presented in black dresses, to highlight their topic about using social influence research and social media to combat sexual offences, as in the #MeToo movement, but it was our team who carried out their own research and statistical analysis about reducing childhood obesity who took second prize on the day.
Well done to Ella, Mara, Alice, Lottie, Shona and Ellen for their efforts, and for ably presenting their psychological knowledge to the panel of judges.
An interesting and worthwhile day for all involved!
