A Matter of Taste

Year 11 Psychology students are currently conducting a range of experiments on a range of students and staff across the college. Prior to doing the experiment students would have to hypothesise what they think the result might be.

On Monday, two students ran a taste-based experiment that saw two groups of student’s drink juice. Though the juice was the same flavour, it had been coloured using food dye.

The first group was blind folded, but the second group wasn’t. The idea was that those who could see the juice were tricked by the colour and might think that it was different flavours.

Once the experiment was completed, the psychology students went to write up their report based on their observations.
