This group discovered that humans ability to hear high and low pitched sounds do not follow a specific pattern. This group tested students ability to rapidly recall sounds. Some students recognized low pitched sounds quickly and some Recognized high pitched sounds rapidly. Please view the data table and testing mechanisms.
This group is connecting poor vision to genetics. They discovered that students who have parents with glasses have a harder time reading line five in the vision chart.
This group was testing sound waves and a humans ability to distinguish sounds accurately in devices presses into the ear (earbuds) vs devices placed on top of the ear. The results showed that the earbuds more accurately enabled the listener to hear voices as the sound waves were more concentrated.
Does eye color or gender influence a viewers ability to accurately see colors? We found that boys with blue eyes see black and gold in the the selected image but girls with blue eyes see white and brown.
How does viewing an object assist or hinder our ability to accurately determine the texture of an object? So far the data is inconclusive.
This station is testing the ability of students to see if liquids or solids are easier to determine when considering taste.
This group discovered that odors from molecules can overload our senses over time and we lose our ability to smell that particular odor. When a new smell is introduced, it resets our senses and then we can more accurately recognize the original scent. This group used orange peels and coffee. The coffee was used to reset the stimulus so students could again detect the intensity of the orange peels.
This group showed how more rigid objects cause immediate reactions where less rigid objects bring slower reaction times. The impulse to the brain is skipped when objects that trigger skin cells more intensely are introduced. This is called a “reflex”.
This instructor is recording the ability of learners to accurately recite sound waves coming from varying distances. They determined that sound waves lose energy over time.
