Past Live Science projects

The Science Museum has welcomed many different research groups—from psychologists and epidemiologists to genetic anthropologists and linguistics experts. They asked thousands of our visitors questions, such as ‘Are you easily distracted?’ and ‘Will you spit for science?’.

Examples of previous Live Science projects include:

  • Dr Chris Abela, Great Ormond Street Hospital: Me in 3D
  • Professor Sarah Jayne Blakemore and Lisa Knoll, UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience: Am I a risk-taker?
  • Professor Edward Codling, University of Essex: Emergency! Exit? What Would You Do in an Evacuation?
  • Dr Margot Crossman, University of Roehampton: How do you see the world?
  • Dr Matt Davies, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge: Listen Up!
  • Dr Nick Davis, University of Swansea: Why Do Your Fingers Go Wrinkly in the Bath?
  • Dr Patrick Esser, Oxford Brookes: What Makes Your Walk Unique?
  • Dr Tim Holmes, Royal Holloway, University of London: Insight into your sight
  • Dr Keith Jensen and Liam Pollock, Queen Mary University of London: What Do You Think is Fair?
