Dartmouth awarded $21.8 million NSF grant

>More than 30 professors, students and staff will be involved with the project and several departments and programs at the college will have ties to the CCEN, including the departments of education, mathematics, psychological and brain sciences, and the Native American Studies program and the digital resources at Baker Library. A partnership with professionals at the Montshire Museum of Science, a rural, hands-on science museum located in Norwich, Vt., ensures a valuable connection to teachers and educators in the community.

Currently, the National Science Foundation's SLC initiative encompasses four core projects based around the country to enhance understanding of the human learning process. Dartmouth joins Boston University, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Washington in this effort.

The four co-principal investigators, Scott Grafton, Director of the Dartmouth Brain Imaging Center, Laura Ann Petitto, Chair of the Department of Education, Kevin Dunbar, Professor of Education and of Psychology, and Todd Heatherton, Chair of the Department of Psychological and Brain Science, will be senior scientists involved in the CCEN.

The heart of CCEN will support basic research projects at Dartmouth such as investigations into language acquisition and bilingualism, reading and literacy, the neurocognitive paths of number development and skill retention, the social aspects of learning and adolescent brain development and social behavior.
