Product Details

How fast can you react, and what affects your reaction time? How much variation exists between individuals and their reaction times? This activity uses a unique reaction time strip that allows students to measure one type of reaction time. Students learn that reaction time varies naturally from one person to the next and that there is a limit to how fast reaction time can become. Students experiement with the effect of sight and sound on reaction time. Other reaction time experiments can be performed after establishing the basics with this hands-on kit.

Super Value Kit is complete for 30 students working in pairs. All materials are reusable.
