AP Psychology fair returns this year


The AP Psychology Fair will be held on March 11 in the auditorium. 

The fair was originally started by the previous AP Psychology teacher, but It was planned this year by Katie Jeray, AP psychology teacher, and Steve Lamberti, humanities department chair.

“I am most looking forward to seeing students utilize the materials they have learned in class to run well-designed experiments they have created themselves,” Jeray said. “And, of course, hopefully having some fun with their experiments as well.” 

During the fair, AP Psychology students will be running experiments based on content they covered in class. Teachers signed up to bring their classes to the auditorium throughout the day so that they can be subjects for the experiments.

 “We will likely conduct an experiment involving the connection between a real hand and fake hands’ correlated senses,” Grace Mika, junior, said.

“For my experiment I will be testing the Stroop test. I’m really looking forward to viewing the psych fair because people are going to have lots of interactive and hands- on experiments for attendees to engage with,” Kayla Defano, junior, said.

As fun as it sounds, it’s still hard work for the participating students.

“I am not looking forward to the research paper I will need to write afterwards, with the graphs and all,” Willa Wu, junior, said.

“I’m looking forward to the presentations. I love seeing what other people do and love talking to people about what I’m passionate about,” Michael Kazak, junior, said. 

However, he is not looking forward to missing classes. “I’m taking a few other classes that I really can’t afford to miss a day on,” Kazak said.

The students who will be in the experiments have differing feelings. “I’m excited to see the projects,” Katie Vidmar, junior, said. “But I feel like I’m gonna be a lab rat.”

“Either way, I’m just happy to be a part of a fun experiment,” Jackie Casillas, junior, said.
