Monday, February 25, 2013

Pittsburgh – The Robert Morris University chapter of Psi Chi, an international honor society in psychology, is hosting Psych In A Box for high school juniors and seniors, Friday, March 8, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Sewall Center at RMU's Moon Township campus.

Psych In A Box is a hands-on event to explore six major fields of psychology and poses questions during the demonstrations such as: Can your sense of taste be fooled? How well can you actually multi-task? How much can you count on your teammates? What does “abnormal” really mean?

The goal of the event to create excitement about the field of psychology while advancing the understanding of the field.

“Robert Morris offers a top-notch psychology program with a strong curriculum taught by strong professors,” said Eric Levine, senior psychology major and president of Psi Chi. ““The goal of Psych In A Box is to showcase the psychology program and expose local students to the strong educational experience they would receive at RMU."

Levine and other members of Psi Chi, along with faculty advisor Stephen Paul, will collaborate with faculty within the School of Education and Social Sciences to help demonstrate what the psychology program has to offer. Local high schools invited to participate include Moon Area, Quaker Valley, and Cornell.

Space is limited. To RSVP or for more information, please contact Donna Reilly at the School of Education and Social Sciences at (412) 397-6024 or reilly@rmu.edu.
