RISC (Research in Spatial Cognition Lab) works to understand spatial learning and cognition and how they can be fostered by effective technology and education.

TICL (Temple Infant and Child Laboratory) conducts research on how children from 2 months to 10 years learn about the world they live in.


TILES (Temple Institute for Learning and Education Sciences) is a cross-college collaborative effort supporting an interdisciplinary research community in the science of learning. Featured speakers present relevant topics throughout the semester.

SILC (Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center) was a Science of Learning Center funded by NSF to bring together scientists and educators to understand spatial learning and to use this knowledge to develop programs and technologies that will transform educational practice, especially in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
