Are you 10 to 17 years old? Would you like to take part in a research study looking at how young people think, problem-solve, and act at home and at school? University of Tasmania Psychology Honours students Katie McBain (’88) and Natalie Ling (supervised by Assoc Prof Nenagh Kemp and Dr Kimberley Norris) are running a study looking at these skills in young people who were born prematurely, as well as those who were born “on time”.

If you want to take part (with your parents’ permission!), you’d come to the UTAS Newnham campus on Friday 30 August or Saturday 31 August for one session of 1- 1.5 hours. You would do some face-to-face tasks with the researchers, as well as you and your parent filling in some questionnaires about how you think and act at home and at school. If you’re interested in learning more, please email us at (or phone 6226 7534) or (or phone 6226 7199). We’d love to hear from you! (UTAS Ethics no. H18018)
