Who we are
The Research in Education and Learning Lab at UVA is housed in the Curry School of Education. As part of the Applied Developmental Science program, the lab's research focuses on studying how children develop the skills necessary for science learning and critical thinking more generally. The specific areas of research include children's developing spatial reasoning abilities and children's inquiry skills including question asking and curiosity more generally.
We are always looking for families interested in helping us learn through participation in our research. We also are working to develop and nurture relationships with local schools and informal education groups, and have educational programs and professional development that can be modified to fit the needs of community groups and schools. Finally, we are often looking for students interested in research in these areas to join our team and help us learn more about child development!
