In Autumn 2019, we launched the next phase of Gemini. For the first time in 7 years we invited all Gemini families (parents and each twin) to take part in online questionnaires and an online game. This is the first time we have asked the twins to tell us about themselves. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the incredible response. Thank you very much to all who managed to complete our online survey and game!
As a thank you to all the families who took part and completed the parent and twin questionnaire we sent you £20 love2shop vouchers. We also entered each family into a prize draw to win a pair of iPad mini's.
In June, we held our prize draw for the iPad mini's and contacted the lucky winners.
All our winners were extremely excited to receive their iPad's and we asked them to provide us with a photo and let us know how they have been making use of them.
Teagan and India have been using the iPad's to play Fortnite (an online video game) with each other & friends, and to access Duo-lingo to brush up on their French & Spanish.
Tom and Joshua were thrilled to receive new iPad Mini's to replace their old and rather slow tablets! They will be using the iPad's to play games, take photos, make videos and stay in touch with their friends over the summer holidays.
Drew & Willow were also excited to receive the iPad mini's and couldn't wait to open and enjoy them.
The results of the studies are still being processed and will eventually be written up for academic publications. As always, they will also be published on our Research group homepage. Our study homepage is located here: https://www.geministudy.co.uk/
