Take part with your child

Take part in studies online with your child!

We run online studies for children! These are fun, game-based activities that you can do from home, such as listening to a story, watching a video, or playing. In the past we have run studies on how children form first impressions, how children's learning about others' mental life changes their behaviour, and how children seek out information about social groups from books. Check out our current study, the Great Grape Game, on this page.

All you need is a quiet room at home and a laptop or desktop computer with working speakers, and a stable wifi connection. Once you have completed the study, your child will receive a certificate for their participation! Our researchers will be happy to answer any questions you have about the study. We will also ask whether you would like to be included on our mailing list for updates about new studies.

If you would like to know more - without committing to take part in any particular game - please fill in the form below. We'll email or call you back (whichever you prefer) to let you know when we have games for your child. If you decide to take part, we'll follow up with you and give step-by-step instructions on how to begin.

You can find more fun activities at ChildrenHelpingScience.com, which has studies from many universities around the world, on many topics, for nearly any child!

Play the Great Grape Game! This game for children aged 4-12 is about saving grapes before they disappear from the screen. Kids react to what they see by pressing a button as quickly as possible, unless they see the Yuck Face! The game takes around 15 minutes, and is part of a project aiming to encourage healthy eating in children. Please fill in the form below to find out more - we'll get back to you by email or phone, whichever you prefer. There is a space on the form for any questions that you might have.
