Nothing dangerous… just fun, interesting experiments.

Latest experiment: Have you ever done something wrong?

Every day until 25 September 2016

Have you ever done something that you are not supposed to? How do you think we should react to someone who has? Researchers from the University of Oxford hope to learn more about what you think of people who have done something wrong.

Who can take part?

The experiment takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Anyone aged six or over can volunteer. Written consent is required for everybody. If you are under 16, your parent or legal guardian will have to sign the consent form.
