Children needed for Loughborough research

A research team from the University is looking for children to take part in an educational study.

The study is observing how children learn about numbers and would specifically like children aged 4-6 years who have started reception year at school to take part.

The session involves parents bringing their child along to the University for around 45 minutes, where children will play different number-based games.

In return for participating, the children will receive a certificate and a small prize as a thank you for taking part and there will also be an allowance of £10 to cover travel costs and time.

Data collected in the study will be confidential, and any research published will have no information included which could identify any children who took part in the study.
