On May 8-9, five senior psychology students from Grenfell travelled to Halifax, N.S., to present their honours research at the 42nd annual Science Atlantic Undergraduate Psychology Conference at Dalhousie University.

The Science Atlantic conference is a unique research conference held annually in nine disciplines, including psychology. This conference provides undergraduate students from universities throughout Atlantic Canada the opportunity to showcase their own research, learn from psychology presentations in many different areas, and to network with students and researchers across Atlantic Canada.
This year the conference had more than 100 student presenters and a dozen faculty members from 14 institutions, as well as visitors from Dalhousie graduate programs and publisher sponsors. The conference kicked off on May 8 with a graduate program blitz, with graduate student ambassadors pitching their respective programs in a three-minute talk. May 9 was a full day of posters and talks, ending with a banquet and awards ceremony at the University Club. Keynote speakers professional magician Michael James and psychology student Colin McCormick delivered an address titled "The psychology of magic."
The students would like to thank their donors for their contributions and support to attend the conference.
