Week 1

I arrived at Boulder on June 1 (Sunday) and moved into the Bear Creek apartments, where I'm sharing a room with Christine Wang, who is also participating in the DREU program with Professor Colunga. On Monday, we walked to campus and met Professor Colunga. We got to hear some more detailed information about the projects that she is working on, which deal with language learning in very young children, and about the different ways in which we will be able to contribute. Over the course of this week, we spent most of our time reading up on relevant topics, learning how to run experiments with children, and learning to use the Emergent software to gather data networks.
