Science in Action Day: Academy Researchers
Academy attendees will visit Johns Hopkins University for ½ day. They will learn about the translation pipeline (from foundational to applied research to practice), visit two laboratories to learn how foundational and applied science is conducted, and explore how such research may inform classroom practice. (All attendees will participate in the Science in Action Day; each attendee will select two labs of interest to visit).
Dr. Amie Bettencourt will share insights from her work on the consequences of not being socially and behaviorally ready by kindergarten, and on bolstering young children’s social-behavioral skills through interventions with parents.
Dr. Jason Fischer will share insights from his work on how we understand and interact with our visual world.
Dr. Amy Shelton will share insights from a collaborative project to explore the development of cognitive skills that are critical for math and science learning in children ages 4-8 years.
