Bryna - My name is Bryna Jaindl and I am currently in grade ten at McLurg High School in Wilkie, Saskatchewan. I really enjoy playing all kinds of sports and being active. My favourite sports are: volleyball, basketball, hockey, badminton, track and field, softball and golf. In the winter I like to snowmobile and play hockey and in the summer I like to do water sports, swim, rollerblade and play beach volleyball. I am the treasurer for my high school’s SRC and volunteer a lot of my time officiating and minor officiating various sports activities. I like to listen to music, play guitar and enjoy reading a good book. Last year, I won the Jr. Female Athlete award and the Most Dedicated student award. I am planning on being a lifeguard this summer at our community swimming pool. I enjoy traveling and am glad to have the opportunity to see our nations capital.

Abstract:This project studied the effects of perceptual blindness. Our results were documented by having test subjects watch a video that we created about perceptual blindness (originated by Simons and Chabris). Overall, 62.5% of the test subjects proved to be perceptually blind. Teenagers were shown to be least affected by perceptual blindness. Children and adults were shown to be affected the most.
