The goal of Epsychlopedia is to be an outstanding educational resource for introductory psychology students, educators, and non-psychology students, who may be curious to learn about the topic. We hope the site will be a forum for interactive education -- with users interacting with users, as well as with the site's content.

Creating this site has been a huge challenge for the Epsychlopedia team. However, we were able to meet this challenge by supporting each other. Through hundreds of emails, long-distance phone calls between U.S. and Argentina, Yahoo! chats the message board, we all learned just how important and effective collaboration can be. If you are interested in seeing a portion of our collaboration visit our site development discussion forum (please don't post any messages in this forum).
Hi, I'm Aly and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina (a beautiful a city, BTW). I am 17 years old and I'm a senior in high school. I'll be graduating somewhere near mid-November, and I'm really excited about it. I'm going to study Business Administration (or maybe Economics?) next year in College and I wish for a career in business in the future.
My #1 after-school activity is the Internet, and I got fascinated with Thinkquest as soon as I knew about it. I'll see my ideal world coming true when telecommunications finally make distance disappear once and for all, and I'm sure we're not too far away from that (things like TQ make me even more sure of it). The making of this page has been so far a really hard but incredibly wonderful experience, because of a large list of reasons I couldn't even start enumerating now. I hope you like it too, and please give us Feedback!
Hi, my name is Zach, and I live in California, east of San Francisco. I am 18 years old, I recently completed high school, and I will be attending a university in the fall. I am not sure what I want to do for my career. Maybe, my hobbies will give you some insight. I like to design web sites, do Mock Trial, play basketball and tennis, read good books, and of course, hang out with my friends.
Unfortunately, there has not been too much of that last hobby, recently. TQ is definitely the largest project I have ever worked on, but it has been worth all the time and effort, because it was also the project from which I learned the most. I learned about how to research, how to manage and complete a huge project, and a lot about psychology. I will definitely pursue psychology in college. I hope you enjoy the site and I welcome feedback.
Hello, my name is Bobby and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. I am also 18 years old, I recently completed high school. I will be attending a university in the fall and I am planning to major in Electrical Engineering and/or Computer Science, though I'm not sure at what right now. I'm a very "techhy" type guy. For hobbies, I like playing basketball, watching television (maybe not the traditional hobby :) ) , and having a good time with friends.
ThinkQuest has been such an amazing experience these two years. From building web pages to interviewing professors of psychology - Epsychlopedia has certainly been the largest project I've ever taken on. But despite all the work, ThinkQuest has been the greatest learning experience of my life - in terms of developing both my Internet and collaboration skills.
