Recently, North Carolina’s Museum of Life and Science hosted an event called Heroes vs. Villains. DIBS was present, and folks from the Huettel Lab helped out. Going with the Heroes vs. Villains theme, folks from DIBS performed a social coordination task where people could work together or compete with each other to earn more rewards. As a bit of fun, a Good and Evil personality scale was also used. Check out some pictures here.
