Psychology Graduate Students Host Workshops for Local Students
Last weekend, Sewickley Academy’s Super Saturday event included time on Carnegie Mellon University’s campus. Six graduate students in the Department of Psychology worked with Ayana Ledford, director of diversity and inclusion in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, to develop and present workshops designed to engage middle and high school students from educationally underserved Pittsburgh communities. The students participated in activities based on social, developmental and cognitive psychology research and learned about psychology degrees and potential career paths. Representing Carnegie Mellon University - Psychology were Katilyn Mascatelli, Sandrine Girard, Phoebe Dinh, Juliet Shafto, Casey Roark and Kevin Jarbo.
