How do children respond to films?

Sometimes films can have a positive effect on viewers. When they learn something new, for example. But the effects can also be negative, like causing children to become agitated or restless. In the first two weeks of August, communication scientists from the University of Amsterdam studied how strongly children respond to film. They carried out an experiment in NEMO Science Museum in Amsterdam. Read more about the project on  the website of the University of Amsterdam (only available in Dutch).
