On Friday 23rd January, Professor Gary Thomas welcomed some young researchers to the University. The Year 2 children from Chilcote Primary School, were working on their research project 'What rewards work'. They had already visited local schools in the area to gather data by questioning other children on the rewards they had at their school. As the author of the book How to do your research study, Gary provided advice on the best way to do their research. He discussed what constitutes a reward, how rewards might change as children got older, what kinds of reward could be used in school and other aspects of the research question.
