Our new Your Scientific World immersive learning activities have been created specifically for Scientific American: Psychology, 2e, and are designed to show students how psychology applies to their lives or possible careers. Your Scientific World puts the student in a role-playing scenario and asks them think critically about a concept from the chapter and how it is relevant to their lives. There is one activity per chapter and all are available via LaunchPad.
