Douglass Discovery

Did you know that children can perceive numbers from the first days of life? That is just one
of the many wonders of early childhood. Cognitive Developmental Science is a very young
scientific discipline compared to other fields such as physics and biology, but it has already
revealed much about the mind and the brain, informing philosophy, education, public
health, computer science, and many more fields. Work with Dr. Jenny Wang to research
what factors influence the way children see numbers! Dr. Wang has been doing research on
children’s perception of numbers and how it relates to their mathematical learning for over
a decade. She also has a passion for mentoring undergraduate students and nurturing your
interests in conducting scientific research and studying young children.

This opportunity is part of the Douglass Faculty Fellows program, which offers Douglass
students hands-on research and collaborative projects in the arts, humanities, and social
