We present a streamlined system to understand the mind of people regarding topics of everyday life. The topic dealt with in this paper concerned the preferences of high school and slightly older students for topics in a course on healthful eating and living, with the goal of forestalling or preventing obesity and diabetes. The focus of the paper is on the rapid design, execution, and analysis of the study, with the goal of encouraging students ages 10 years and older to enter the world of science both as researchers and as respondents, respectively. By creating a fast, easy, inexpensive, and iterative system to ‘do science’ in a real way, the approach deepens our understanding of how people make decisions, and permits the improvement of public policy.
