Science Museum

Live Science

You are here:

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.

Visitors take part in experiments at a Live Science event

Latest experiment: Is there a link between you and me?

What do you notice about your own body? What do you focus on when you see other people move? Come and help our Live Science researchers from Middlesex University and City, University of London discover more about the relationship between ourselves and others.

Who can take part?

Anyone aged six or over can volunteer, and written consent is required from all volunteers. If you're under 18, your parent or legal guardian will need to sign the consent form. The whole experiment will take 20 minutes if you decide to do all four tasks (five minutes for each task).
