Research Network

About the Research Network

We’ve discovered that the greatest impediment to character development research is not lack of funding but, rather, the time and effort it takes to connect with students. If we can help scientists surmount these obstacles, we will radically accelerate the science and practice of character development.

How the Research Network works

The Character Lab Research Network is a consortium of innovative middle and high schools around the country that we connect to leading scientists around the world. Together, these scientists and educators develop and test activities that encourage the development of character. 

The Research Network enables scientists not only to collect data faster and more easily, but also helps them conduct more sophisticated research—research that takes advantage of user-centered design and rapid prototyping. 

Educators make the science happen
