Leveraging Science to Improve the Lives of Children and Adolescents: A cross-disciplinary discussion
There has been a great deal of progress in the scientific understanding of how children learn and develop—and the social contexts, conditions, and systems that can promote health, well-being, learning, and social success. There are many challenges to leveraging this science for real-world impact. Yet, there are also exciting opportunities—and compelling reasons for overcoming these challenges. Please join us for a discussion: • How can we better utilize and apply our science? ….to move outside our academic silos and connect our work to improving the trajectories of young lives in complex real-world contexts? • How can we more effectively work in trans-disciplinary teams? • How do we balance the need for scientific rigor and precision with the noisy and messy real-world settings where we apply the work? • How to balance the need for bold innovation—designing and testing science-informed early intervention strategies—with the need for caution about un-intended consequences?
