This is the image for the news article titled West AP Psych Class to UW-MadisonThe Advanced Placement (AP) Psychology class from West High had an amazing field trip to UW-Madison! Maggie Mataczynski, a 2015 West graduate and former AP Psychology student who is in her 4th year at
UW-Madison majoring in psychology, invited the class to Madison to see the pre-doctoral research that she is directly involved with, including a study she designed and is running by herself. Students learned about the complexities of studying human behaviors and the new direction of research - individualizing and personalizing. They observed and participated in activities conducted by researchers in the field. They saw psychology in action and insights into the college experience as well. AP Psychology teacher Elayna Clark was thrilled to provide this opportunity for her students.
