A Thumb Generation
Region:Eastern Newfoundland
City:Paradise, NL
School:Villanova Jr. High
Abstract:This project studied technology use and its influence on whether a person used their fingers or thumbs for other tasks. Subjects were grouped according to age and were observed using a calculator to answer an equation. The group aged 11 to 15 demonstrated the strongest support of this hypothesis, however, the amount of use and age also appear to be contributing factors.
