ICD at the State Fair!
On Monday, September 7th, members of the Institute of Child Development staffed a booth for the ICD Participant Pool (IPP) at the Minnesota State Fair, and it was a smashing success! Albert Yonas, PhD, professor, and Stephanie Carlson, PhD, associate professor, had stage time during which they presented testing tasks they typically use in their research labs. The IPP registered 237 children, mostly preschool and early school-age. Booth staffers handed out 500 puzzles and 500 rattles with contact information on them, and lots of people took registration cards to mail back. They also were able to tell people about the brand-new online enrollment form and are already receiving responses that indicated they heard about the IPP at the state fair!
