TRC Early Childhood


Early Childhood article

“How much science do four-year-olds know? More than you’d think.”

Dr. Jim Barufaldi, Principal Investigator, and Dr. Mary Hobbs, Coordinator for Science Initiatives, have spent the last few years complementing the TRC’s work in K-12 education with a National Science Foundation funded research project exploring what prekindergarten children know and can do in science.  You can read highlights of that work in the inaugural edition of a new online magazine, .edu Magazine, produced by UT’s College of Education.
