Children as Scientists and Scientists as Children
ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum is honored to host acclaimed developmental psychologist and author Alison Gopnik, Thursday, August 2nd at 7pm.
Alison Gopnik is an internationally recognized leader in the study of children's learning and development. She was the first to argue that children's minds could help us to understand deep philosophical questions and her research into how childrenâ€™s minds work is fascinating and inspiring. She is the author of over 100 journal articles and several books, including the national bestsellers The Scientist in the Crib and The Philosophical Baby; what children's minds tell us about love, truth and the meaning of life. We will have copies of these books on site for sale and signing by Alison.
Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation.
