    • Psychology Day: A campus visit with lab tours and a presentation delivered by one of our own professors
    • Type 1: Presentation on the labs and types of research in our department

    • We typically have two graduate volunteers per visit (i.e., one presents while the other helps host and monitor the chat for questions, or where both present)

    • Following our visit, surveys are sent to teachers and students for feedback
