I am bilingual in French and English and have been in French Immersion since kindergarten. I also like to play soccer. I am very excited to attend the Canada Wide Science Fair for a second time.

How Does Technology Affect Your Attention Span?
City:Inuvik, NT
School:Samuel Hearne Secondary School
Abstract:Electronic devices intended for everyday use increasingly help us to communicate, entertain, and be productive. But do they also affect us negatively? This experiment tests the effects of technology on one’s attention span. The experiment controlled for age and sex, and tested the effect of different devices on a random sample of 20 students. Cell phones seem to distract young boys the most.
