A joint program of the University of Maryland, Gallaudet University, and Howard University, the Language Science Station is a living laboratory that invites Planet Word visitors of all ages to contribute to language research and have conversations about language with budding language scientists.

Find Language Science Station researchers located on the third floor in the Spoken World gallery.

Ongoing studies include:

Race the Robot
Visitors complete sentences as quickly as they can to learn about how brains make predictions about language.

E is for Expert
Visitors talk for 30-60 seconds about a topic they know a lot about, and a topic they know less about, to learn how words are connected in the mind and how experiences shape these connections.

All Planet Word visitors are welcome to participate. Reserve a general admission pass in advance to ensure you get your preferred entrance time to the museum.
