This research started out as a CREST (British Science Association) science project. It aims to study the affects of bedtime technology on the body’s circadian rhythm in adolescents.
Monty’s intention is to present the findings to key influencers in the government in the hope that some of his recommended prevention and intervention strategies can be implemented at a national level.
After months of research, Monty decided to open up his research to the wider community in the form of this citizen science project, in the hope that everyone can learn & share from the results and play a part in adding to the data sample, further strengthening the argument that this represents a very clear public health concern for adolescents in all countries.
This citizen science project has also been launched during the 75th anniversary of the creation of the United Nations, as part of a series of UN75 ‘Shaping Our Future Together’ programmes. The project also supports the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG3: to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
