Physics: Depth perception in basketball and football

This week the kids designed and executed an experiment to investigate whether two eyes are better than one when it comes to football or basketball. This lesson was a follow-up to the lesson we carried out two weeks ago, in which we carried out some mini-experiments on depth perception. Reflecting on the difficulties and challenges that came up during these experiments allowed the kids to write a more well-thought-out and developed experimental design for this week's experiment.

All groups found that on average a subject's game was improved with the used of two eyes over one.
