Behavioral Science Project :)

Recommended Posts

ok so im doing science fair at my school and i'm going to start conductiong my experiment but im sort of undecided. You see, what i want to do is go into either a my classrooms and conduct my experiment or go to a public place and do it. What i'm going to be doing is on behavioral science and its about how people react. i'm not sure how to word that, sorry. Like im going in, not going to talk to anyone and bring a bag of stuff and dump the bag on the table and put the stuff back inside and repeat this like ten times. While im doing this im going to have one of my friends record what it is that people are doing around me, like whether or not theyre staring at me, whispering, attempting to avoid me, ext. I was just wondering if anyone sees any, like, problems with this or thinks i should tweak this at all. Any help would be great! thanks! :)

This sound quite interesting!! A public place thats busy would be a great place to do this.

This sounds like fun! Do you know what "Invisible theater" is? It's when people act in front of an "audience" (Which can be, the people at the mall) without letting them know that it's all an act. The actors usually try to make the audience participate in the play without them knowing, and the audience should learn a lesson from this. I think that your project could also be considered a kind of "invisible theater" as you will be performing without the audience knowing, and they will interact in an indirect way with you through their expressions (And if you are lucky, perhaps someone will stare at you and then ask you if you need help with those cubes, or question your sanity). If you don't know this kind of theater already, I would recommend you to read about it! It could give you some really nice ideas to work with!
