This is an experiment for Middle School students to determine if text color affects readability.
In this project, students will find out whether the color of text correlates with ease and speed of reading.
How does the brain work with the eye? What makes us able to see things in color? The human brain controls all functions within the body. One of these functions is eyesight. The brain and the eyes work together so that people and animals can see. Often times, optical illusions may trick the eye into seeing something that isn't really there. This can produce very interesting effects. In this experiment, we'll change the color of text. For example, ORANGE GREEN BLUE RED. It may look pretty easy now, but there will be a whole sheet that people will need to read, as fast as they can. We'll also use a control of all uniformly black text.
