Last Tuesday we joined Lego Club on Zoom and built Rockbridge County landmarks for LegoLand. Here is some of the kids' work! Don't forget to check out our newest study (click here) and participate for a $5 Amazon gift card.
The Fulcher Lab is excited to announce that we are partnering with Rockbridge County 4-H to bring you a brand new 4-H club! Games for Your Brain will be hosted every other Tuesday in the Great Hall of the Science Center at Washington and Lee University!
Starting February 18th, your kids can come play lots of fun, new games, while learning about different parts of their brain and how they are used in each game! Games for Your Brain will run from 5:00-6:30 pm.

For her senior honors thesis, Davis Straske '19 researched and wrote about the development of empathy in young boys-- finding that when young boys were able to play with baby dolls, they developed stronger empathy. She submitted her thesis and was featured on the WBUR (Boston NPR) website and radio show - Go Davis!!
Here's a link to read more about it:
So far, our lab has visited Enderly Heights Elementary School to teach our lesson on emotions, and Natural Bridge Elementary School to teach our lesson on spatial skills with LEGOs.
Our new lab member Graham made his community outreach debut in the emotions play, written by our friends at Enderly Heights!
At Natural Bridge, we saw some of the best LEGO free play creations!
Thank you to Rockbridge County YMCA for letting us host these lessons!
The Fulcher lab is in the early stages of a new project -- a toy library for the families of Rockbridge County! If you have any STEM toys for children of all ages that you'd like to donate, please contact us at email@example.com
We would greatly appreciate your gently used toys and ideas for toys that promote STEM learning!
