Tonight's Program: See science in action! Researchers from the Infant and Child Cognition Lab at Boston College will be here 5:30pm - 7:30pm to share their current research exploring how children learn numerical concepts. Children and adults will have the opportunity to observe and participate in research through hands-on activities and games designed to help the scientists discover how children understand early math concepts. Data from your participation may even contribute to active research studies, with adult permission!
Free with admission

Come join in all the fun and explore the accessible Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods during this special free evening event especially for families with families with Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or KODA children.
