The Bilingualism Matters branch at Penn State is housed by the Center for Language Science, which is home to a rich cross-disciplinary research program on the science of bilingualism throughout the lifespan from a range of perspectives, including experimental psycholinguistics, linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, and speech pathology. The branch works in partnership with various local organizations, including campus preschools, the Penn State Eberly College of Science Outreach Office, as well as teachers and administrators working in the local school district. Much of our work involves providing workshops and conducting activities that engage the general public in language science, and help promote decisions and practices informed by language research. Visit our projects page to see a sample of the online activities we've created.
