Aberdeen's Children: Stories of the 1950s Birth Cohort
-

An online exhibition about the early lives of children born in 1950s Aberdeen, and the research study that they were part of.

All children born in Aberdeen from 1950-56 took tests to assess their reading and maths abilities as part of a University study into learning disabilities. The data they provided has proven invaluable to researchers over the years, and they have given further information in subsequent studies, contributing to advancing understanding on topics from learning to aging.

Many cohort members still live in Aberdeen today, although their home city has changed somewhat! They have come together with researchers at the University of Aberdeen to create an online exhibition that explores the history of the research they’ve enabled, but which also tells their own stories of life in 1950s Aberdeen, from childhood games to living conditions and growing up.
