How quick are your reflexes? In this online game, you are a hockey goalie defending quick slap shots. Learn about reaction time, muscle memory, and reflexes.
Stomp High Low
Learners work together as a group to learn a new physical activity. After working for a few rotations, learners time themselves as part of a contest.
In this activity, learners will perform various investigations to understand the vestibular-ocular reflex and learn about the importance of visual cues in maintaining balance.
In this activity, learners conduct an experiment to test how fast they can react. Learners try to catch a piece of paper with a ruler printed on it (or a ruler) as quickly as they can.
How Fast Are You?Add to list Details
This activity is designed to let learners measure their reaction time or response time to something they see.
Think Fast!Add to list Details
This is a quick and simple demonstration about reflexes (fourth activity on the page). One learner stands behind a see-through barrier like a window or wire screen.
Shrinking SpotAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners control the (apparent) size of a hole with their brain.
Springs and StomachsAdd to list Details
In this demonstration, learners investigate mass, gravity, and acceleration by dropping a wooden bar with a balloon attached to its underside, a mass suspended from it by rubber bands, and a sharp-poi
Slowing the Flow
In this experiment, pairs of learners explore how cold water affects circulation. The mammalian diving reflex (MDR) slows circulation when the body is exposed to cold water.

This is a quick and simple demonstration about reflexes (second activity on the page).
Knee Jerk Reflex (Patellar Reflex)Add to list Details
In this quick and simple activity about reflexes (third activity on the page), learners conduct a simple test to explore the knee jerk reflex, typically conducted at the doctor's office.
Pupil to PupilAdd to list Details
In this quick and simple activity about reflexes (at the top of the webpage), learners conduct a simple test to explore pupillary response.
