Examining the effect of age on hand-eye coordination
The experimental data and analyzed results support the hypothesis that teenagers possess better hand-eye coordination than adults.
Hand –eye coordination skills are essential for our survival in this world. Without hand-eye coordination skills, we would not be able to accomplish even simple tasks such as buttoning our shirt, picking up a cup from the table or writing a note.
A child usually spends the first few years of life to develop this skill, which promotes independency as they grow older.
This science fair project can be also be repeated with the ruler drop test, or by bouncing a ping pong ball and catching it using alternate left and right hands.
Try to repeat the experiment by checking the hand-eye coordination skills using several age groups between 5 to 60 years old to determine the age of peak performance.
