Event Overview

Expert Speaker Presentations - Through their real life experiences our speakers will give students the chance to understand how psychology is applied in the real world; the contribution of psychology to individual, social and cultural diversity, and ultimately to a successful society, providing useful and interesting case studies and examples.

Q&A Session - The opportunity to ask questions of industry practitioners and learn about careers associated with the subject during the interactive question and answer sessions.

Team Park Challenges - While enjoying and being immersed in the Disneyland® Parks the Park
Challenges encourage students to take a step back and look at the resort from a scientific perspective. Students are given simple experiments to complete which allow them to develop arguments and draw conclusions about how psychological principles/theories are applied across the resort in order to
stimulate specific behaviours and responses.

What You Say

Brilliant Psychology conference!

Walbottle Campus

Michelle Fletcher was the best, the students loved her. They felt they had a clear insight into her role and her field. Her presentation was engaging with real life examples, she clearly broke down how she carries out clinical assessments and linked this back to relevant examples

Bacons College

Another excellent trip thanks to EST. This is the third year that we have done the trip and every time EST deliver in terms of making it easy to organise the trip and particularly when in the resort, where they are always available to assist when needed. Staff are enthusiastic and really welcoming. We will be returning again next year!

Garforth Academy

We definitely want to come back next year. Your trip represented better value for money than the rival company as the pupils had one more day in the park.

Churchdown School Academy
