Tassie Researchers – Child-led education program for 8-14 year olds – Peter Underwood Centre

“Tassie Researchers” is a child-led education program and research project aimed at children aged 8-14 years.

Over five days, children are facilitated by researchers from the Peter Underwood Centre, University of Tasmania, in conducting their own research project. They will learn how to ask a statistical question, design a data collection method, gather data, analyse results and present their findings.

The goals of the program are twofold:

a) To support children in gaining practical research skills.
b) To investigate and improve adult approaches to child-led research.

We are offering our next Tassie Researchers project to home-schooled children. The group is capped at 15 participants, so if you would like to take part please contact Megan on megan.lang@utas.edu.au for more information and to express your interest.
