UT Children’s Research Center

At Badgerdog, we believe children deserve to learn in a creative environment that honors each child’s unique blend of learning techniques, styles, and challenges. We appreciate the work of organizations like the Children’s Research Center at the University of Texas, which relies on the help of Austin families and children to participate in their ongoing research studies. Studies are for infants to 17-year-olds, focusing on how children develop reading skills, how they think through and solve problems, how imagination and creativity are developed through play, how the brain changes, and more. When children visit the center, they read books, solve puzzles, watch puppet shows, play video games, and engage in memory games with our researchers.
