It's been quite a week of events with so many things happening for the Royal Holloway Science festival. Psychology was involved in helping out with exciting demonstrations and experiments during the first ever Science Dinner held in the beautiful Founders Dining Hall. As well as experiments that tantalised our tastebuds and saw how we combine our senses, guest got to cook their own food on hot rocks in a paleolithic style in a demonstration organized by the Geography Department - much buzz, discussion and meeting of minds followed in what was an incredible event, enjoyed by all.
Next day the fun continued with Super Science Saturday, when college opened up as giant free science exhibition to all visitors. There were many exciting interactive displays from Psychology that allowed visitors amongst other things to track their own eye movements, find out about helping schoolchildren with a language problems, playing word games and testing their senses with visual illusions. Despite the bad weather we were kept busy with visitors from far and wide all day, several telling us how much they enjoyed the day. Dr. Jeanne Shinskey who runs the 'Baby Lab' in the department took part in a podcast you can view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJlMcttq5XE&list=UUJienFY-JaiCVJEzDp7T9OQ&index=2
Thank you to everyone who helped make the events such a success!
