Thinkery is excited to share that Thinkery Connect Headquarters is now officially open!
Thinkery Connect is a museum-university-community research partnership between Thinkery and The Center for Applied Cognitive Science at The University of Texas at Austin. Built with the support of an Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Museums for America grant, Thinkery Connect HQ includes a: 1) Research Hub, 2) Exhibit Prototyping Zone, and 3) Community Resource Nook.
We hosted the grand unveiling and official ribbon cutting for Thinkery Connect HQ on Monday, April 4, with Dr. Cristine Legare and researchers from The Center for Applied Cognitive Science. Thinkery Connect HQ is focused on increasing public understanding of how children learn and using research-based practices that enhance learning about science. As part of the event, Dr. Legare shared some of the amazing research she and her team have been able to do at Thinkery already…as well as a look at the exciting work to come!
