In this week's episode, we review articles on novel behavior. Diana gushes over lag schedules and their effects on novel architectural features in children's play, Rob demands 21st-century learning for America, and Jackie wishes for her very own block building kit. Then the gang gets cerebral in a discussion about creativity as behavior. All that and the home version of the Novel Vocalizations Game!
