We are a group of researchers at Yale University. We study child development with fun activities where children answer questions about pictures and videos. By asking our questions to hundreds of children, we can learn how children understand the world, and how teachers and parents can best teach children about the world. For 20 years, we have worked with families at our Yale University lab and nearby schools and museums. Now, we are using video chat to bring our studies directly to families everywhere.


Sample Study

This image of a laptop screen shows what a video chat study looks like.

The researcher will ask a question, such as “The person in blue knows all about cows. The person in green knows all about airplanes. Who do you think knows more about owls?”

Your child then just says “blue” or “green” to answer.
