Project on Children's Thinking



We have studies ongoing for children from 0 to 15 years of age. Typically, our studies involve brief play sessions. During these play sessions, which usually last about 15 minutes, we show children a series of pictures or objects and the children answer simple related questions. Children generally find these sessions fun, and each participating child receives a small gift. 


We are always looking for families who are interested in participating in our studies. If you have children and are interested in participating in studies at the Project on Children's Thinking, please fill out the form below and we will contact you with more information about our lab. You will be added to our database of participating families and as studies come up for which your child is the right age, we will contact you to try and set up an appointment. [If you are expecting, just send us an email or place your expected due date in Date of Birth and we will happily update your child's information after they are born and let you know if your new infant is eligible for any infant studies.]
