Brains On! Covid-19 Research Sign Up Form

Hi Brains On! listener families, 

Do you have any kids ages 5 - 12 who have listened to one or more of the Brains On! coronavirus episodes? If so, we'd love to hear from you!

We just received a grant from the National Science Foundation to do some really cool research to understand how the Brains On! episodes help support children's and families' information needs about the COVID-19 pandemic. We are gathering data for our research by sending out surveys to Brains On! listener families over the course of this coming year. We've already finished one survey and you can find out what we learned from that survey hereOur next survey will be in late fall (we aren't sure when yet). Brians On! will use what we learn to produce future coronavirus-related episodes. We will also share our survey findings with other organizations who are creating pandemic-related educational content and activities for families.
