Hi all!

My name is Rob and i'm a design student at the university of the west of England.

I am currently trying to create a product to help/encourage kids to go outdoors and explore the wonderful world we have before us!

Right now i am in the research phase and i would be very grateful if you could fill out this short questionnaire about the restrictions children face going outside.

Who knows? maybe with your help i can create something incredible to help the next generation and tear them away from their games consoles and computers! smile

if you would like anymore information about the project or myself please ask! smile

But you'll need to be careful about working out whether parents have given the amounts of time as a total number of child hours, or as the number of hours per child. I couldn't work out which you wanted when you said child/children, and the amount varies considerably between mine.

Done - mines is the one with all the comments about seasons grin.

ds(11) is outdoors > 14hrs a week just now as he can be out till 7pm and weather (although cold in Scotland) is still relatively dry. In winter it is much much less.

So if you can create something to get rid of seasons and early dark nights that would be great!!!!

Thanks for the feedback Ethelswith smile i did think that, but after i had already had a couple of replies and by then it was too late haha! i might be able to add a note though.

Thanks to you also Weallhavewings! wasn't sure if i would get any replies from here as i know it probably isn't the normal kind of post, but 2 within the space of an hour!
