On April 4, 2012 I led an Education by Entertainment program entitled Using Psychology Games and Activities of Yesteryear to Prepare for our Future for the Bryant University Psychology Association as an end of the academic year and pre-graduation program.

We played about a dozen games which demonstrate a variety of psychological principles and also discussed how having participated in or having watched the games could help improve job performance, lifelong learning, family communication, etc. The games included multitasking, giving directions to a blindfolded partner while looking at the world through inversion prisms (which made everything look upside down), locating sounds, naming mismatching colors, recall for eye witness testimony, identifying people and finding a hidden prize.

The photo of Sarah Krabbe and Christina Knips holding the Using Psychology Games and Activities of Yesteryear to Prepare for our Future is so much fun sign shown on the left below was taken during the program. Neither Sarah or Christina were told the content of the signs until they received the photo album.

The program concluded with selecting a champion, finalist and semifinalists. The champion (Sarah Krabbe) was blindfolded for presentation of special gifts, awards and prizes as shown on her certificate on the right below. Awards and prizes were presented to the finalist and semifinalists, and gifts were distributed to all attendees.

Pizza and soda were served as well.

Students reported having a great time.

Photos from the event also reflect that the students had a great time. The event photo album was recognized as one of the top twelve presentations of thousands uploaded to SlideShare the day after the program was uploaded and was featured on their home page as shown in the photo which follows the conclusion of this this article.

The complete album of the event may be viewed on SlideShare (of course).

The Champion Award Ribbons were made by Hodges Badge Company.

The inversion prisms (which make everything look upside down) were made by PsychKits.

Custom made gift items including magnets, t-shirts, hats and trophy labels were printed by VistaPrint.
