Ambidexterity and left-handednessFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis There are more ambidextrous left-handers than right-handers, is proven to be true.

Ambidexterity gives a person an added advantage in sports, art, music and martial arts. It is a highly prized gift in sports like baseball and snooker. Most musical instruments are played using two hands. The great artist, Michelangelo was able to paint using both his hands.

Also consider

To improve the reliability and accuracy of our results, a larger sample of participants should be used.

This science fair project may be repeated, this time, to observe if the level of ambidexterity is affected by the age of a person.

Modify the science project experiment, using different tests to check ambidexterity - such as measuring the time taken to copy a 100 word essay using different hands.
