NAPL Kids Project visited a third grade science class at the Princeton Friends School. After learning about the brain, the children did a fun eye-tracking experiment. They learned about how their eyes move differently while seeing a picture of Harry Potter's face or reading a short paragraph. We had a great time with the class, and we hope to have another fun outreach event there in the future!
Team Kids had an amazing time meeting all those who attended the Young Women's Conference in STEM. The team had a great time showing budding scientists an eye-tracking demonstration and perceptual illusions that boggled their minds! We had a great time meeting you all, and we are looking forward to more activities with the Young Women's Conference in STEM! :)
Team Kids visited Littlebrook’s science lab class to take science beyond the textbooks! The team showed the children an eye tracking demo to give them a first-hand look at some of the tools used in our lab as part of the Kids Project! We had a great time meeting you all, and we are looking forward to more activities with Littlebrook's science lab class! :)
Team Kids set up a booth in front of Nassau Hall for the annual Princeton Communiversity. Families tried on perception distortion goggles and found that tossing a ball at a target was not as easy as they thought! Through trial and error they learned to correct for the distortion and eventually hit the target. We hope to see you at the next Communiversity!...

Team Kids visited the Maurice Hawk School Science Fair and had a great time telling families about the Kids Project. The team shared some articles from the Frontiers for Young Minds journal about the development of math and reading. We had a great time sharing our presentation and learning from the presentations of the rest of the young inquisitive minds!... Read more about NAPL Kids Project at Maurice Hawk School Science Fair
Sabine Kastner will talk about our project on a radio show These Vibes are Too Cosmic tomorrow (May 9, 2017) at 6-8 pm, 103.3FM or WPRB.com.
Below is from the announcement:
Tomorrow, we have special guest Sabine Kastner of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Sabine helped us understand memory and learning in our live performance back in February, but she visits tomorrow to focus on her newest project: how can we better understand the development of young brains? Sabine brings children into the research lab for MRI scans and psychological...
