Comparison of the ability of boys and girls to identify facial expressionsFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that girls would be able to identify facial expressions more accurately than boys, has been proven to be true.

Facial expressions are a useful way of expressing feelings or one’s emotional state without speaking. Emotions easily expressed can include love, hatred, anger, fear and surprise. Sometimes, facial expressions are used by parents and teachers to indicate to children that they are doing something wrong. Animals also use facial expressions to demonstrate anger, or to protect their territory and offspring.

 

Also consider

The science fair project can be repeated on students from different age groups.

The experiment may also be repeated with a larger group of students and with a different set of photos.
