ExpeRimental psychology videos for kids now available

26 May 2017

Two videos from ExpeRimental films showing simple psychology experiments to try with children are now available to watch on Youtube.

Two shorts films showing simple psychology experiments that can be tried with children are now available to view on Youtube, having been filmed at Ben Jonson Primary School in Tower Hamlets in March.

The Royal Institution of Great Britain transformed the school into a laboratory workshop for the day as part of their ExpeRimental series, filming hands-on science workshops with students and staff, some of which were related to psychology and supported by the British Psychological Society.

The first video, which can be viewed here, is a short experiment that can be used to help children remember things, whilst the second, available here, shows how to make a hollow mask illusion.

Professor Peter Kinderman, Vice President of the BPS, said of the series:

“We are proud to support the ExpeRimental series as part of our commitment to promote the relevance of evidence-based psychology to wider audiences. Psychology is a vast and varied discipline and there are many misconceptions about what it is and how it can help. By supporting campaigns like ExpeRimental we hope to dispel some of the myths and develop a greater understanding of psychology from an early age, and to encourage an interest in this fascinating subject.”
