Who We Are 

We are a group of psychologists from the University of Virginia who are passionate about sharing our love for psychology with the broader community. We aim to forge lasting, meaningful relationships with local community organizations. We do this by providing science outreach and education programming in order to spread neural literacy. Our goals are to spark curiosity in others through real-world experiences and interactions, cultivate new avenues for active learning in diverse groups of people, and normalize scientific inquiry as a method of understanding the world around us.
