Students Apply Psychology in the Animal World!

Year 12 students recently attended psychology workshops at Chester Zoo.

Students were able to observe many different species and then explore how their understanding of human behaviour can also be applied to animals. During these workshops students studied the different types of attachments that monkeys and apes form with their young. Students also studied how just like humans, rewards and reinforcements can be used to modify behaviour in animals such as giraffes and elephants.

The staff who delivered the workshops were impressed with students’ knowledge of psychology concepts.  A great end to the year for year 12 students!
