Corliss Outley

Having fun is her work. Corliss is an urban play researcher. In this role, Corliss hangs out at inner-city parks and recruits kid assistants to help her with her data gathering. These kids help Corliss determine what kinds of activities city kids like best and what things they'd like to change about their neighborhoods. Corliss shares this information with educators and community leaders who can help adults and children improve and create new urban play environments.
