The Effect of Talking and Texting on a Cell Phone on a Person’s Reaction Time
This project investigates how talking and texting on the cell phone will affect reaction time. Talking on the phone slows down the reaction time of a person. Texting on the phone slows down the reaction time of a person even more.
From the students’ observations, humans cannot multi-task; we are actually switching focus between two or more functions.

I can’t hear you!
|The students investigated which material absorbs the most sound and whether the thickness of the material affects the amount of sound absorbed. |
They concluded that cotton is the best material for sound proofing as it absorbs the most amount of sound. And the more layers of cotton used, the more sound is absorbed.
