Previous Projects

The Children’s Lab opened in Spring 2015. Previous research carried out by the lab leader, Dr. Sarah Rose, include:

  • The effect of watching fast and slow paced television on 3- and 4-year-old’s behaviour and performance during a  problem solving game and a test of their understanding of the television programme watched.
  • Creative ideas: where do children (age 7-16) get their ideas of what to draw from?
  • The development of children’s (age 5-16) expressive and representational drawing abilities in Steiner and National Curriculum schools.
  • Evaluation of the ‘Walking Bus Scheme’ using child focus groups and children’s drawings.
  • The attitudes and practices of children, their parents and their teachers about children’s drawings.
