visit us in the lab!
Our lab is running studies for infants and young children! Our lab is open seven days a week, 9:00AM - 5:00PM, as well as on selected evenings. If you're interested in visiting the lab for a study, please feel free to call (212-998-7917) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org). Looking forward to seeing you in the lab!
Happy Snail Trails! Infants can help us explore planar and spherical geometry by watching short animations of happy snails moving along different paths. Can infants tell which snails choose the most efficient paths? Age eligibility: 6.0-7.5-month-olds; 15.0-19.0-month-olds
Look at the Dax! We're interested in studying how language may help infants discriminate objects by their shapes. Can infants use language as a cue to uncover the geometric differences among objects? Age eligibility: 10.5-12.5-month-olds
Crib Logic! How do we start to understand general logical operators like "OR" and "NOT"? Imagine infants see that a ball goes into Cup A OR Cup B, but then they see that the ball is NOT Cup A. Where do they expect the ball to be? Age eligibility: 14.0-18.0-month-olds
Munchkin Masterpieces! Children explore the world around them by making judgements about geometry. We're studying how young children's drawings can reveal how they analyze different geometric information from their surroundings. Do you know the next Picasso or Leonardo? Bring them to the lab for some fun studies on drawing! Age eligibility: 4.0-year-olds
The Road Less Traveled! What intuitions do young children have about the shortest path between two points on pictures of planes and spheres? Help us find out! Age eligibility: 4.0-7.0-year-olds
We're very grateful for every family that participates with our lab! At the end of each study, children receive a small gift for their participation.
Visit us at MoMath!
We're excited to be partnering with the National Museum of Mathematics to promote mathematics exploration, learning, and pedagogy! We're currently conducting a study with 6-12-year-olds, investigating their intuitions about the properties of triangles. Find us at the museum on Sundays from 10:00AM - 5:00PM to participate in our study!
Children who participate at the museum also receive two shapes of constant width, based off of the Coaster Rollers exhibit at the museum. What are shapes of constant with? A shape of constant width is a unique, convex shape in which its width is constant regardless of its orientation. You can read up on Wikipedia about how to make a shape of constant width! If you'd love your own LDM shape of constant width, but can't make it to the museum, check out our shop on Shapeways to buy one in your favorite color!

For infants near their 7-month "birthday": 6.5-7.5-month-olds
