That was the title for Chase and Emily's science project. (aren't I clever to have them do it together...one project is totally easier than two!)The kids had watched a Myth Buster episode a few months back that sparked their inner scientist. The guys were testing an age old myth that goldfish only have a memory of three seconds. They tested the myth by making a maze and training their fish to swim through it. That wasn't too practical for them, so they had to come up with there own way. Here's what they did:
Pretty clever I think. We now know that Blue Wave, our beta fish, has a memory of at least a week. He responded the the kids conditioning after a week without the trigger right away. So in the words of my kids, "Get your fish a bigger tank!"
