Live Science

Live Science is an ongoing project in which scientists carry out research in the museum using visitors as volunteers. Take part and find out more about yourself. Nothing dangerous—just fun, interesting experiments.

Latest experiment: How do other people influence you?

How much do other people influence your thoughts and actions? Would a family member have a bigger effect on you than a stranger?

Come and help our Live Science researchers from Goldsmiths University discover more about the relationship between ourselves and others. 

Who can take part? 

The whole experiment will take about 20 minutes if you decide to do both tasks. Anyone aged 8 or over can volunteer. Written consent is required for everybody. If you are under 16, your parent or legal guardian will need to sign the consent form.

Previous Experiment: is there a link between you and me?
