2:27 p.m., April 15, 2013--The Infant Language Project at the University of Delaware is trying to answer the question "how do children learn language?" and invites those who are interested to participate in the study.

The project, which is directed by Roberta Golinkoff, H. Rodney Sharp Chair in the School of Education, has studies for children up to 4 years of age that explore various aspects of the language-learning process.

Research Stories

Concrete evidence

Julia Maresca, an assistant professor in UD's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is conducting research aimed at identifying bacteria that can serve as an early damage-detection system in concrete.

ECE series

The University of Delaware's ECE Distinguished Lecture Series for 2015-16 will include talks on synthetic biology, the tactile Internet, engineering education, and electronics for the human body.

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. Prospective participants can also email the lab at udinfantlab@gmail.com with any questions. Free parking is available for participants behind the Willard Hall Education Building.
