Dr. Haden and her team are broadly interested in questions about the ways children learn from and remember their experiences. We partner with Chicago museums and libraries in the surrounding area to understand the important role parents can play in children's cognitive development. Our latest project, TALES: Tinkering and Learning Engineering Stories, is also interested in the role storytelling plays in informal STEM learning experiences. Visit the research projects page for more information about all our latest projects.
