Workshop Event – Become a Researcher for a Day

From Director of Curriculum, Lynsey Porter 

As part of their Development Affective Science workshop series, the University of New South Wales would like to invite students to experience being a Researcher for a Day!

The workshops will take place next month at UNSW’s Kensington campus, on:

Friday, 11 October from 2-4pm

Thursday, 17 October from 4-6pm

The workshop offers interested students from Years 5-12 the opportunity to learn about what it’s like to be a researcher. The aim is to create a fun environment where young people can learn about what researchers do and get involved in the research process.

As part of the day, students will be given a brief talk about what research entails and then get some hands-on experience in brainstorming and running their own experiments. The event will close with the Developmental Affective Science Lab Director Dr Susanne Schweizer presenting some of the research conducted in the lab.
