Strategy games and spatial reasoning
Our hypothesis has been proven correct. People who like to solve puzzles and play strategic games will possess better spatial reasoning skills than those who don't like solving puzzles.
Spatial reasoning is an important form of intelligence that helps us understand and solve problems by visualization and mentally manipulating the images. Playing strategy games like chess or solving puzzles like the rubix cube and sudoku helps to train the brain and improve spatial thinking abilities. Introducing young children to these activities at an early age will help them to improve their intelligence.
This science fair project may be repeated, this time, using standard tests for evaluating spatial reasoning abilities.
Try comparing the spatial reasoning abilities between genders and persons of different age groups.
Repeat the science project experiment, using a larger number of participants who play strategy games or solve puzzles regularly in order to improve the reliability and accuracy of our results.
