Title - Accepting or Discerning: Do Preschoolers Have Preferences for Certain Types of Explanations of Biological Causality?

Speaker - Kaitlin Sands, UT Dallas

During the preschool years, children become very interested in and ask many questions about biology. This study examines what types of explanations 4- to 6-year-old children think are acceptable to answer questions about causal relationships in the biological domain and what factors play a role in children's ability to distinguish acceptable explanations.

Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
