My Science Fair Project

By Mikayla Walker

Question

Does gaming help the brain?

Hypothesis

Yes, I believe it helps the brain in education.

Backround Knowledge

There are some video games that are already educational(Puzzle games, Kids Games Math Games,etc.) Scientists have also done tests to already answer this question.

Procedure

Finish a math IXL(X.7). Play a video game for 15 minutes afterwards(different game each time). Finish another math IXL(X.9.) Repeat.

Data

FIRST TEST

First Score:

Second Score(After Playing Minecraft): 34/41 missed 7

SECOND TEST

First Score:50/60 missed 10

Second Score(After Playing FNAF 4):37/43 missed 6

THIRD TEST

First Score:30/32 missed 2

Second Score(After Playing Slither.io):37/42 missed 4

Conclusion

The majority of the games did improve the person's score. So, I assume it depends on what game they play.
