CCD High School Work Experience Program

Last week, the centre hosted the year's second group of students from a number of different local high schools as part of its Work Experience program.

The students engaged in a variety of research training activities and gained an idea about what it's like to choose a career path in cognitive science research.

Highlights from their schedule included:

  • Design and execution of a mini-research project
  • Presentation of findings
  • Attendance at lab meetings
  • Participation in online coursework ( Delusions and Disorders of the Mind course)
  • Sampling of experiments using virtual reality, Doppler brain-imaging and non-invasive brain stimulation
  • Lunch with the CCD Director, Professor Stephen Crain
  • And more...

CCD members enjoy engaging with students and sharing their enthusiasm through the CCD Work Experience program. We encourage students to apply for the program early in the year, as places fill quickly and the waiting list can get quite long.

Dates for the 2018 program will be announced soon!
