NSW Stage 6 Investigating Science

FACT or FALLACY?

Fact or Fallacy is strictly for Investigating Science Students. For our Working Scientifically sessions, click HERE

Fact or Fallacy from term 4, 2018. Students will conduct a series of mind-based EEG experiments to prove Fact or Fallacy on several common beliefs. A common belief is that lying down helps a person relax and creates ‘Theta’ brainwaves. Another belief is that heavy metal music creates ‘Beta or Gamma’ waves and cannot help a person relax. The session investigates these beliefs using our EEG headsets to see if they fit into the areas of Fact or Fallacy.

This investigation is different to the ‘Working Scientifically‘ session in that students don’t design their investigation. All guidance is supplied. However, we suggest students only attend one session during their unit. For the full session outline, click HERE.

Session numbers
We can take up to 25 students in a session and as group experimentation is involved, a reasonable space should be set aside. 

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.
