In this science project, you will quantify changes in reaction time due to cold, stress, and practice.

Preparation: *Each participant will take the reaction time test. The Online Reaction Time Test (See resource under the bibliography section) involves a "traffic light" with a red, yellow, and green light. As soon as the traffic light changes from red to green, participants will have to click a button. The response time is measured from the time the light turns green to the time the participant clicks the button. Participants will take the original test as well as three variations of this experiment as follows: *Original version: Participants will perform 1 practice trial only (The reaction time test allows .....
