Video games and concentrationFeatured science projectScience project video

Abstract

This science fair project was done to find out how playing video games improves the concentration of students and consequently their performance at exams.

Hypothesis

Children who spend a large number of hours playing video games will be able to concentrate better at their studies.

Scientific Terms

ADHD (Attention deficit /hyperactivity disorder), brain, vital organ

Background

Video games and concentration

Studies have shown that playing video games has helped children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to improve their concentration. These children were exposed to video games for 6 months. They were allowed to play video games for 5 to 7 sessions per week. Their parents and teachers were able to see significant improvements in their behavior at home and school after these children were introduced to video games.

Some video games can be very stimulating to the brain and help to train our brains to focus and concentrate better. We need focus and concentration to achieve what we want for ourselves. Compared to watching television, playing video games can actually be considered as exercise for the brain. Some video games even help us to improve our problem- solving skills.

The brain is one of the vital organs in our bodies. Just as our body needs exercise, so does our brain. Training the brain to focus, concentrate and think constructively can lead us to higher accomplishments.
