Transition Year Students and Psychslam

Posted on April 26, 2015 Posted under - Picture, Post

Transition students went to UCC to compete against others schools in describing a topic in psychology in a fun and engaging way.
Topics ranged from ‘why do some people love to be scared by horror films’ or ‘Can online friendships be real’ or even ‘does playing video games make you smarter.
Emer O Mahony, Megan Pigott and Carol Goff represented Presentation Mitchelstown. They presented their work at the school of Applied Psychology in the Boole lecture theatre UCC. They presented on the topic ‘can online friendships be real’ The presentation was in the style of Pecha Kucha which is a type of presentation during which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format is used to deliver concise and fast-paced summaries of a topic, where imagery and storytelling is used to great effect.
The girls presented their topic to an audience of students from 11 other schools, psychology students and lecturers from the school of Applied Psychology at UCC. The girls did an amazing job on the day and their work was highly praised. We are very proud of these young ladies.
