High School Psychology Club: Behavioral Engineering II

Hoop Rats is intended to be a hands-on lab activity where students will use B.F. Skinner’s Operant Conditioning to train lab rats to play basketball. Students will be involved with monitoring behaviors, memory, and health (the rat’s not the student’s) as well as being actively involved in the training procedures. At the conclusion of our project, the rats will travel to the Adventure Science Museum for summer play. We will also incorporate the series “Brain Games” and discuss its practical applications.
Requirements: High School Students
Cost: Club Fee $15 (This will cover fees and club t-shirt)
