Experimenting with Babies: 50 Amazing Science Projects You Can Perform on Your Kid

Babies can be a joy—and hard work. Now, they can also be a 50-in-1 science project kit!

This fascinating and hands-on guide shows you how to re-create landmark scientific studies on cognitive, motor, language, and behavioral development—using your own bundle of joy as the research subject. Simple, engaging, and fun for both baby and parent, each project sheds light on how your baby is acquiring new skills—everything from recognizing faces, voices, and shapes to understanding new words, learning to walk, and even distinguishing between right and wrong.

Whether your little research subject is a newborn, a few months old, or a toddler, these simple, surprising projects will help you see the world through your baby’s eyes—and discover ways to strengthen newly acquired skills during your everyday interactions.

Shaun Gallagher, a father of two ongoing science experiments, is a writer and a former magazine and newspaper editor. He also runs the popular website Correlated.org, which analyzes statistical data to find funny and surprising correlations. He lives in Wilmington, Delaware
