A Decade of Science Informing Policy
In recognition of ten years since the publication of the Council's first working paper, this retrospective tells the story of how the group came to be, what its impact has been, how its members work, and why the Council has made a difference.
Project for Babies
The Project for Babies is an initiative of the University of Minnesota Center for Early Education and Development. In 2012, the Project for Babies developed an educational video on the importance of the early years. The video features Regents Professor Megan Gunnar, Director of the Institute for Child Development at the University of Minnesota and member of the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child. The video consists of four sections, each approximately five minutes in length.
