Kindergarteners Learn about Their Brains!
Dr. Donald A. Robin, Professor and Chair of the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department is pleased to announce a new partnership between the Seacoast Charter School in Dover, NH and Communication Sciences & Disorders Department at the University of New Hampshire. The Improvisation and Brain Project is designed to promote creativity in children while fostering cognitive and linguistic growth. It is known that when children learn about their own brains they have greater rates of graduation and are better at emotional control and social networking. When they learn to improvise, they develop creative skills and their imagination. They learn to deal with the unexpected. Finally, we know that learning music and improvisation changes the brain and strengthens its connections. Sara Willis, Head Student, Communication Sciences and Disorders Major and Noah Waller, Neuroscience Major are participating in the Improvisation and Brain Project.
