My project is about finding which kind of handwear best helps kids catch footballs. I chose this project because I have always been passionate about football, it is fun to throw and catch footballs, and this information would really help football receivers decide whether to spend a lot of money on football gloves. My results were that the grip gloves caught more passes than non-grip gloves and bare hands. My project is important because a lot of kids could be better at football if they use grip gloves, and grip gloves could help in everyday uses by helping people hold difficult to grasp things.
