Science Project

The oldest decided to do the science fair this year for the first time. Since his dad is a high school science teacher, he knew going in that it was going to have to be good. We talked about several different projects but in the end he settled on subliminal messaging. Well, he just finished today; three weeks before the due date. We had to push him along a bit but in the end he did a great job. He made two movies. One with a subliminal message, (an apple) and one without. He then showed the movie to 681 subjects. (The sheer number alone should be good for a win.) In the end, his results matched the research; subliminal messaging really does not make much of a difference. (It only made a difference of 4% in this experiment) Check out his movie.
