Event description

Description

Information Sheet

We at the Psychology department at Kingston University would like to invite you and your child to join us for half a day of exciting research. Come and visit us for a chance to see what we as developmental psychologists do to try to understand how children develop.

Should you accept this invitation, your child will be asked to participate in a number of school based tasks (i.e. pen and paper and computer games) investigating the way in which children process words, shapes, numbers and emotions. Each task will take 10 – 20 minutes and your child will be able to take part in as many or as little activities as they like. They will be given the opportunity to interact with peers and experience exciting methods such as eye tracking. Your child will be in no danger, as our tasks do not include any form of chemicals, medical imaging or harmful assessments. For more details about example studies your child will be participating in on the day, please see our website.

Participation is voluntary, and you will have the right to withdraw at any given time with no questions asked. All data collected will be kept confidential and anonymised for the purposes of our research. Unfortunately we will not be able to give you specific information about how your child has performed on the tasks. We will however send you a newsletter outlining our findings and the important work your child has done by becoming a young scientist for the day.

There are several sessions for your child to attend - please pick your preferred one by clicking 'REGISTER' above and selecting the relevant drop down.

Please feel free to ask any of the developmental psychologists organising the event any questions you may have about the day.
