The Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) is committed to advancing research that informs our understanding of child development. As part of that commitment, BADM partners with scientists to provide a place to conduct original research studies with museum visitors. Research partners include labs from University of California—Berkeley, Stanford University, Mills College, and the University of Washington. Researchers investigate a wide range of topics including creative thinking in children, language acquisition, causal reasoning, STEM learning, and the role of social relationships in children’s learning.
