Science Fair Help

It's my favorite time of year again--  science fair!  This year I get to help THREE kids put together their science fair project.  Lucky, lucky me!  (;

Graci and Taylor are requesting your help in their projects.  First of all, for Graci's project, if you could watch a short video and then leave a comment with the answer to the last question it asked, that would be sooo helpful!  Please state if you are male or female, as she is investigating whether gender affects the results of the test.  You can have family members take it too, if you feel so inclined to help even more!  (:

The video is HERE.

Secondly, Taylor is investigating the Birthday Paradox.  If you could just leave a comment in the comment box with the birthdates (without the year) of you and your family members, it would help tremendously.

The more participants, the better.  (:

Thank you, wonderful readers!!!

  41. Had my husband do it- he counted 16 and yes he did see it. He thinks it really is 16 because of one very quick pass that happened.

  42. For Graci:
    No, female (which is a scary thought - with seven busy kids I'm quite concerned that I might miss a gorilla or an even more frightening creature lurking around our house just waiting to snag one of us!)

  43. You already have my family's birthday's because I am your family. :) If for some reason you don't have the entire list of our entire family, let me know and I'll e-mail it to you. :)

  44. Hey Guys - OK - here's the results from the video -

    3 of the girls spotted the gorilla - our 5 year old got it on the second pass - none of them got the number of passes correct - all were bewteen 12 - 14 - the gorilla was an obvious distractor to them.

    And I left out the proof of the birthday paradox - we have an exchange student with us from Korea, Bella is 16 - and shares Marie's DOB - 07/05.

    love you guys - aus
