The Center for Talented Youth Opens a New Research Lab

A prominent spokesman for international business, Harvey Goldstein is the managing director of Business-Link Consultancy and has been a board member of the Young Presidents’ Organization of Indonesia. Dedicated to enriching the lives of young students and business leaders, Harvey Goldstein is also the Chairman of Southeast Asia’s Advisory Board of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth.

Recently, the Center for Talented Youth opened a new research lab on its main Baltimore campus. The lab offers young students a variety of recreational options, including everything from Lego and tangram puzzles to video games with 3D headsets. In addition to offering students plenty of play opportunities, the 1,350-square-foot lab also gives cognitive scientists the ability to study how gifted children learn.

According to Amy Shelton, the director of research and a professor at Johns Hopkins, the lab is designed to help share information regarding the behavior of advanced students. Elaine Tuttle Hansen, the executive director of the Center for Talented Youth, also believes that the lab will play a crucial role in giving scientists insights on which strategies help students, both gifted and not, reach their full academic potential.
