Aim: to decide which gender is better at determining the flavour of jelly beans using the sense of smell and taste.
• jelly beans to taste
• Blindfold to make sure students cannot identify flavour of jelly bean by colour
• Snap-Lock bag to carry jelly beans in
• Glass of water to refresh taste buds after each Jelly bean
Hypothesis: If students are only allowed to use their sense of taste when guessing jelly bean flavour. Then females are more likely to guess flavour correctly because recent study have proven¹ that females have more taste buds than males.
Health & safety: to ensure that all safety precautions are taken, the jelly beans need to be inclosed in a ziplock bag. Any participants in this experiment
