Student and Faculty Research

The Child Development  Center is an integral part of the Developmental Psychology courses at Rollins College. Students spend several hours in lab learning scaffolding skills, objective observation, documentation and assessment of the children's development.

2013-2014 Research Projects

STEM research project:  Dr. Sharon Carnahan's students will  implement STEM research practices with young children. Students will practice using research toys for the encouragement of Science Technology Engineering and Math skills with the children visiting the Orlando Science Center.

The Narrative Project: Rollins students study the way that young children make meaning out of their personal experiences through the stories they tell. Children’s narratives are coded for various features and analyzed to explore the development of narrative skills and associations with social adjustment and emergent literacy across the preschool years.
