Color and appetiteFeatured science projectScience project video


The hypothesis that the squirrels in the red box will eat the most nuts is proven to be correct. Squirrels are affected by color in the same manner as we are.

Choosing the right color when redecorating a home or business is very important to set the right mood and feeling for the occupants. The choice of colors can influence the mood, behavior and temperament of the occupants. Restaurants, kitchens and dining rooms should be painted red or orange instead of blue, which acts to suppress one's appetite!
