Amelia Bond


Amelia Bond is working as an intern this summer at the Kidd Lab at UC Berkeley. The lab studies knowledge acquisition throughout infancy and childhood. They use computational models and behavioral experiments to differentiate between competing learning theories and measure how infants and children learn and play. Their results are quantitative theories about how young learners interact with the world around them. The theories are used to develop learning technologies for children, parents, and clinical practitioners. Amelia’s role is to design posters and flyers and host events at children’s centers to recruit children and their families to participate in the studies!

She is also volunteering as a Community Reading Buddy at three different preschools in Oakland with the Aspire Education Project. Along with the other reading buddies, is working one-on-one with preschoolers to help them develop early literacy skills and a love for reading!
