10:45 a.m., June 11, 2012--The Infant Language Project at the University of Delaware invites parents and their young children to participate in studies as researchers work to answer the question "how do children learn language?"

The project, which is directed by Roberta Golinkoff, H. Rodney Sharp Chair in the School of Education, has studies for children from two months to four years of age that explore various aspects of the language-learning process.

Franklin Laureate Symposium

Daniel Kleppner, the 2014 Franklin Laureate and MIT professor who has made some of the most intriguing discoveries in atomic physics in the last 50 years, will be celebrated in public-accessible talks at UD.

Parents and their children can be part of the research and help scientists understand how children take this giant leap in development.

During a 30-minute visit to the laboratory, located in the Willard Hall Education Building on UD's Newark Campus, friendly research assistants play with children to help them feel comfortable in new surroundings. Then they present a short game or show a short movie and monitor children’s eye movements.

"If it sounds fun and interesting, you're not alone -- many families have been participating at the Infant Language Project for years," a representative of the project said.

To sign-up for participation, visit the website or call 302-831-2073. Those with interest can also email the lab at udinfantlab@gmail.com with any questions. Free parking is available for participants behind the Willard Hall Education Building.
