The Division of Teaching Laboratories (DTL) continues its tradition of participating in the University wide Perspectives Conference in collaboration with the Toronto Catholic District School Board by offering a reaction time workshop. This is DTL’s fifth year participating in this initiative. This conference allows gifted students to experience the university setting and a multitude of workshops ranging from arts, engineering to science. In this hands-on workshop, 20 participants will get a glimpse of the physiology behind the simple “braking reaction.” Participants will have a chance to test out their reaction time, and compete with each other on a simulator for the fastest time. In addition students will also test out different "stress" factors that alter their reaction time.
