Live Science

Live Science is an ongoing project where scientists come into the Science Museum to carry out research using Museum visitors as volunteers. You can take part in their scientific experiments to find out more about yourself.

Nothing dangerous… just fun, interesting experiments.

Latest experiment: How social am I?

Every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 25 June 2016
11.00–13.00 and 14.00–17.30

How do you spend your time?

Researchers from University College London want to find out how often people carry out different social behaviours, like playing sports or helping others, and hope to understand how social behaviour changes as you get older.

Who can take part?

The experiment takes about 15 minutes. Anyone aged eight or over can take part. Written consent is required for everybody. If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian will have to sign the form.
