An Investigating Science Research Session
♦ Does listening to heavy metal music really stop relaxation?
♦ Does chocolate really help you feel good and calm down?
♦ Is laughter really the best medicine?
By using our EEG headsets, students investigate whether these beliefs are actually true, partially true or completely false. We provide the headsets, the guidance and the worksheets while students undertake a 90 minute group investigation where all members get to use the equipment and have their brain analyzed.
Groups also look at the variables involved, the validity and the ways the experiments could be improved. They will also individually look at the relevance of their investigation for society and do a short quiz so you can see their level of engagement.
We can take up to 25 students in a session and as group experimentation is involved, a reasonable space should be set aside so that the activity from groups doesn’t disrupt others.
The cost of the session is $380 – less if booked as part of a full-day incursion. We need 75 minutes prior to the session to set up headsets and laptops. All headsets, headphones, and up to 2 x laptops are supplied.
