For the third year, the Psychology Department has partnered with the Evergreen School in Shoreline, WA, to bring leading child researchers to the University of Washington campus for public events.  The goal of this partnership is to inform parents and plicy makers about cutting edge research and best practices for child education.  In November, Drs. Kurt Fischer and Todd Rose (both from Harvard University) discussed the importance of working memory in K-12 classrooms, the role of neuroscience in education, and how to transform research into practice in the classroom.
