In this activity (26th on the page), learners construct an easy-to-build device and test motor learning. Learners can build the mazes or use pre-built mazes to measure the time it takes to loop the wire through one side of the maze to the other. Learners will also count the number of errors (buzzes) during each trial. Then, learners will plot the amount of time and number of errors vs. trial number on a graph.
