Participate in Infant Lab

Child Scientists Needed!


In our lab, we are interested in the development of numerical abilities throughout the lifespan, and children’s attitudes about math. We study how these abilities and attitudes change throughout childhood and their relationship to later understandings of formal mathematical concepts, such as fractions. In order to do so, we need your help!

We are currently looking for 4-12 year old children to participate in our studies online. Participation involves a short (approximately 30 min) virtual session over Zoom. Children will play fun interactive activities with a researcher while you watch. Families earn a $5 Amazon.com gift card for participating.

If you would like to have your child participate, please fill out this form or email us at BcCognition@bc.edu.


Featured Study

Thinking About New Games

This is a scheduled study in which you and your child will meet with a researcher and play a short game! We are interested in how 4 – 8 year olds think about other children who have played a new, unfamiliar game. Sessions typically last fewer than 20 minutes and your family will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card for participating!

Please click on this link to sign up. One of our researchers will then contact you with scheduling information.
