Psychology Exhibition Overview

The Psychology Exhibition was created as the major public education initiative of the American Psychological Association (APA) in celebration of its centennial in 1992. The Ontario Science Centre in Toronto was selected by APA as its partner in the development, design, and fabrication of the exhibition and its traveling versions, coordinated by the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC). Although the exhibition’s development began over 30 years ago it is still cited as a model by the profession. It won an award for excellence in exhibitions from AAM in 1993. It was one of 12 exhibitions selected by peers in to be featured as a « noteworthy science exhibition » in “Are We There Yet ? Conversations about Best Practices in Science Exhibition Development,” edited by Kathleen McLean and Catherine McEver (2004). A version of the exhibition continues as “Mindworks” at the Ontario Science Centre
