Harvard is studying how the act of making shapes kids’ brains

Mindshift reports on a study by Harvard researchers in Oakland, California, to test the theory that kids learn best when they’re actively engaged in designing and creating projects to explore concepts. The article does not mention whether the study will investigate differences between boys and girls, but I hope they include that in their study. This could confirm those who propose that boys would be more engaged in learning if they were given hands-on projects to complete.
