Student Project Ideas
“Hugs – Signs vs. Shirts”
- One student wore a shirt that said “Free Hugs”, another student held a sign that said the same. They then tested students in the hallways to determine which was more effective, the sign or the shirt. (The shirt won!)
- Students chose subjects in various age categories and had them perform a reaction test. The computer based test, made the subject shoot an arrow as a sheep ran across the screen. The students proved that teenagers had faster reaction times than adults.
- Students batted at apples with a tennis racket, baseball bat, and golf club to determine which instrument would cause the most destruction to the apple.
- Students used a water balloon sling shot to fling fruit at a tree. They then measured the splatter radius to determine which fruit flew the farthest upon impact.
