Study Participation

Participate virtually! We are looking for children to participate in online research with the University of Houston/University of Washington. 

Beliefs about STEM Differences 

This study is for 11- and 12-year-olds. The study involves one 30-minute online video session where children answer some questions about what they think about different activities. Your child will do an activity about gender differences, and consider things like nature and nurture. We give a thank-you gift of $20. 

Want to join our study? Have questions?
