Child scientists needed! Immerse yourself in the process of scientific discovery as researchers from the Child Development Laboratories at UVA meet families to discuss their research while children engage in short, fun activities as part of new and ongoing studies. This program is part of a national initiative developed at the Museum of Science, Boston, to foster public awareness, engagement, and understanding of the scientific study of children’s learning and development. Stop by any time during the program period to participate.
