Over the years, we have been committed to playing an active role in the Charlottesville and surrounding areas. Through the Labs outreach and engagement efforts, such as participating in community events, collaborating with local non-profits, launching a Living Lab at the Virginia Discovery Museum and by exploring new research areas we've been able to create valuable partnerships in the community and at the same time fostered public awareness, engagement, and understanding of the scientific study of children's learning and development.
