How It Works

Mindworks visitors accrue points by participating in experiments on tablets or in study rooms. Studies that take longer to complete are worth more points than shorter studies. Points can be redeemed for prizes on our prize wall. 

For frequent visitors, join Club Mindworks, our new membership rewards program! Members return regularly to Mindworks to take studies, and may choose to be compensated in gift cards or donations to charitable organizations.
