Research News

The Museum is pleased to be part of a new book, “Cognitive Development in Museum Settings: Relating Research and Practice,” edited by Dr. David Sobel, the Museum’s research partner at Brown University, and Dr. Jennifer Jipson of California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Each chapter in the book describes a partnership between museum professionals and researchers in cognitive development and the unique research studies taking place within informal learning institutions.

A chapter written by Dr. Sobel and the Museum highlights our National Science Foundation-funded project (award #1223777) to study how children understand their own learning processes and make their thinking visible to others through play at the Museum.
