Inviting Teens to Participate in Virtual Reality Research!

The Virtual Study of Teens’ Relationships (VSTAR) is a research study on teens’ peer relationships – using virtual reality to learn more about how teens act in common situations with peers, such as social relationships, rumors, or conflicts.

Who can participate?

Teens ages 15-17 years old or in high school who have permission from a parent or legal guardian.

What do I have to do?

Participate in a one time, 2 to 3-hour visit to the lab that involves completing questionnaires, a brief interview, and several really fun virtual reality scenarios and questionnaires.
