There has been a great deal of progress in the scientific understanding of how children learn and developand 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 opportunitiesand 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 innovationdesigning and testing science-informed early intervention strategieswith the need for caution about un-intended consequences?
