Research Conference Opportunity for HIgh School Researchers!


Pam Marek from Kennesaw State sent the following message to the PSYCHTEACH email list earlier this week, and gave us permission to repeat the announcement here. Looks like a great opportunity for high school researchers to present their work! The folks at Kennesaw are wonderful and I bet it would be a wonderful experience for any high school students and teachers who can make it to the conference.


"On behalf of the Psychology Department at Kennesaw State University, I am extending this direct invitation to you and your undergraduate or high school psychology students to join us at the 11th Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference in Psychology (GURP) on April 14, 2012. We are also inviting post baccalaureate students and junior graduate students in their first or second year of study.

The one-day conference will be held in the new Social Sciences Building on the KSU campus in Kennesaw GA. We encourage you to promote this opportunity for students to present the results of their empirical research, either in poster form or as a paper presentation. We will be awarding prizes for the best paper and poster.

Please email me for a 1-page Power Point file you might print out and use to advertise GURP to your students. The deadline for submitting abstracts for review is March 21, 2012. Further information about submissions, plus directions to the college, lodging, etc., is available at the GURP website, http://www.kennesaw.edu/gurp/.

If you have any questions about the conference, please contact Adrienne Williamson, awill176@kennesaw.edu, Sharon Pearcey (our Department Chair), spearcey@kennesaw.edu, or email KSU's designated GURP account, gurp@kennesaw.edu."
