This paper discusses the outcomes of an initiative to empower able ten-year-olds as active researchers. It describes a study in which a group of ten-year-olds participated in a taught programme of research process aimed at equipping them with the knowledge and skills to design their own research. This empowering process resulted in the children undertaking research projects of their own choosing, designed, carried out and reported entirely from the child perspective.
