"My project is testing if hamsters can remember. I created a maze to test if the hamster can remember simple directions. I did two trials and two tests. The trials were developed to help the hamster get used to its surroundings and encourage it to go to the end of the maze. In the trials, he explored for a while and at first he just hid in corner. We changed the maze and gave a reward to encourage him to find the end. In the two tests, he ran the maze in 24 seconds and 7 seconds. My result was that hamsters can remember simple directions."

  1. Good job in observations and then from those observations making adjustments to the experiment.
