Second Summer Science Institute: An Unmitigated Success

The second group of promising undergraduates came to town in mid-July to attend Session Two of the APA Summer Science Institute at the University of Maryland, College Park. As was the case at the first session in June, topnotch behavioral scientists from universities around the country traveled to the Washington, DC, area to present and discuss their research with 30 freshmen and sophomores.

After 6 days of activities, including presentations and field trips to local labs, the students departed with a greater appreciation for and understanding of psychological science. The scientists, impressed by the students' insight and curiosity, left the Institute with the distinct impression that they had just met some of the future stars of the field.
