Sacred Heart Academy Students to Present at National Science Convention

4/10/19—Students from Sacred Heart Academy received invitations to present their psychological research projects at the Association of Psychological Science (APS) National Convention in Washington, D.C. in May.

Scholars from all over the world will gather to share cutting-edge insights. The Sacred Heart Academy students, consisting of nine seniors and three juniors, will present and discuss their original research alongside professional researchers. Sacred Heart Academy’s Science Research Director Stephen Sullivan encouraged the students to submit their respective projects to the convention, suggesting Social Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, and Educational Psychology as relevant subfields.

“Sacred Heart Academy, especially the science research program, has offered so many great opportunities from day one,” said Madison E. ’20. “This opportunity in particular will prepare me for a future in the STEM field from independent research as an undergraduate student to Master’s and doctoral theses. I am very excited to represent Sacred Heart Academy on a national stage.”

Colleen O. ’19 added, “We all feel extremely humbled to be invited to present our research alongside undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs…we are also honored to have the chance to speak to and learn from experts in the field.”
