Yes.  All research involving interaction with human subjects requires informed consent regardless of who the subjects are.  There are exceptions to this rule: in some studies, subjects are not given complete information about all procedures or hypotheses because full prior knowledge would affect their responses.  Deception of subjects must be justified in each case, and subjects should be provided with a full explanation or debriefing as soon as practicable.  The Board does not routinely approve such projects (in particular we do not believe it is an appropriate exercise for undergraduate researchers), and prior explanation of risks must never be withheld.
