Child scientists needed! Living Lab is an opportunity for children of all ages to take an active role in the process of scientific discovery. Engage in short, fun activities as part of new and ongoing studies as you help researchers from the Child Development Laboratories at UVA discover new insights into how children learn and grow. 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 child development. Stop by any time during the program period to participate.

Developed with support from National Living Laboratory using funding under National Science Foundation Award Number 1113648. Opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations are those of the authors only.
