In Psychology and The Mind, students first learned about the fundamentals of the brain and basic neuroscience. Then, Echelon Catapult instructors taught students about how babies begin to cognitively understand the world and communicate. Next, students learned about the different stages of memory and complexities of perception that give us our human view of the world. Echelon Catapult instructors then guided students through a series of activities and interactions that demonstrated the complexity of human emotion as well as the way that people work together to form ideas and feelings. Finally, students used the psychological knowledge gained throughout the course to solve a series of case studies.
All meetings will take place on Zoom.
