In the Cognition, Culture, and Development Lab, our research focuses on how people explain the events they observe in the world around them. This current study is looking at how children learn science principles in a museum setting. Specifically we are looking at how parents-child interactions affect children’s ability to learn and apply what they have learned to new problems.
Research assistants will have the opportunity to conduct research in a children’s museum, interacting directly with parents and their children and the museum staff. Research assistants will also be coding the video data collected at the museum.
As a research assistant in the CCD Lab, you will have the opportunity to work closely with graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and professors. You will gain valuable experience in collecting psychological data, coding data and learn about data analysis. We require a 7 to 10-hour / week commitment from our research assistants. Please contact us if you are interested in getting involved in this exciting line of research!
We are looking for responsible, highly motivated undergraduates who have a serious interest in gaining experience in psychological research. 3.0 GPA or higher highly recommended.
Time commitment: 7-10 hrs / week
Course credit is available for this project.
