Social science in action

Social science in action

In keeping with our ongoing policy to engage schools in Psychology, we ran a ‘Social Scientists in Training’ event in November 2017, as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.

The event focused on developing the research skills of Year 12 and 13 Psychology students. The pupils created a questionnaire to examine an issue of concern to them at school, such as stress, workloads or the school cafe.

The materials for this event are available to use at your school, helping students to develop their own research skills.
