Prof Jirout/ Research in Education and Learning Lab


Dr. Jirout′s research focuses on two areas of children′s learning: 1) children′s curiosity and question asking, especially in the preschool and early elementary years, and 2) children′s spatial reasoning skills. Her current work investigates how both question asking and spatial thinking can be improved in young children. She is especially interested in how they can influence and be developed by early science education in formal and informal settings.
