Research Ideas

We've got lots of ideas for interesting honour's projects within the Sydney Playground Project.

The list below is an example of what kind of projects we have in mind:

  • Test of Playfulness scores –from video footage of children playing
  • Boys vs Girls on the playground
  • Creativity tests
  • Classroom performance
  • Changes in fundamental motor skills
  • Effects of the playground intervention on children’s cortisol levels
  • Investigate social skills – with a focus on cultural/gender/age aspects
  • Are Australian norms comparable to American norms?
  • How and why are children moving around in class?
  • Extension of SoCARP – social interactions and activities on the playground
  • Extend the TRiPS method
