If different age groups are placed in a room for
several minutes, then the older they are the
more time they will think has passed by because
time perception is affected by age.
The purpose of this project is to find out if time perception changes with age.
● 3 people ( 1 8 yr. old, 1 33 yr. old, 1 57 yr.old)
● empty room
● stop watch
Gather a group of subjects, ages 8 to 57.
Simply tell the people you are conducting an
experiment about the differences in time
perception between children of different ages
and adults, and tell them when and where to
show up. When the participants show up, take
them one at a time into a room with no
distractions and no clock. Keep them there for 5
minutes. After five minutes, enter the room and
ask how much time has passed.
The youngest of the group guessed that the
most amount of time had passed while the two
older had more accurate guesses as to much
time they believed had passed.
As youMy hypothesis was correct, the older you
are the more you time you believe has passed.
