I want to do a science fair project on shopping human behavior. i want to find out how many people check out the clearance racks and buy from there instead of going to the regular priced items first. How ever Im having trouble figuring out how to conduct my experiment. Any suggestions/????????????

Hi Linda,

This is an interesting project idea! Here is a Science Buddies project on how being able to touch a product affects a person's willingness to buy it: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p045.shtml You might be able to modify that project to fit your idea.

You might also be able to answer your question using a well-crafted survey that asks people about their buying habits. Here is some information about how to conduct a survey-based project: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/blog/2010 ... eysays.php Here are tips for designing an effective survey: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... rvey.shtml

I hope this helps you get started! Please post again (in this same thread) if you have more questions.

Heather
