My Name is Andrew Allen and I live in Oakville, Ontario. I attend school at W.H. Morden Public school at which I am in Grade 8. I am involved in several extra curricular activities, such as Tuba Lessons, Concert Band and more. One of the highlights of my year is the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair, and I am very excited to continue on to the Canada Wide Fair this year.

The Effects of Multitasking on The Learning Process
Region:Bay Area
City:Oakville, ON
School:W. H. Morden Public School
Abstract:This Study aims to see how much multitasking affects the learning process and if it varies between ages and genders. Volunteers were recruited to play a flash game and listen to a podcast and were either asked to multitask or perform the tasks separately. Multitaskers performed worse than non-multitaskers in both the tasks, and the results varied between genders and age groups.
