Age and Hand-Eye Coordination

Age and Hand-Eye Coordination | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Do you ever wonder how well you can coordinate your eyes and hands? This experiment will explore the effect of age on hand-eye coordination.


The hypothesis is that teenagers will have better hand-eye coordination than adults.

Method & Materials

You will select participants aged 15 and 30 years old, 10 for each gender, to take part in this study. You will install a computer game and go through the rules and necessary keyboard functions. Each participant will be given three attempts to reach the highest possible level in the game.
You will need 10 boys and 10 girls age 15, 10 men and 10 women age 30, 1 computer game with 20 levels, 1 computer, and 1 quiet room.


The results of the experiment showed that the 15 year old teenagers were able to reach a higher level in the computer game compared to the 30 year old adults. In addition, male participants within each age group were able to reach a higher level compared to female participants.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it explores the effect of age on hand-eye coordination, which is an essential skill for our survival.

Also Consider

Experiment variations include using the ruler drop test or bouncing a ping pong ball and catching it using alternate left and right hands. You could also repeat the experiment by checking the hand-eye coordination skills using several age groups between 5 to 60 years old to determine the age of peak performance.
