Minute to Win It Project Reflection

This project helped me learn the difference between observational study and experiment because of what ours was and its characteristics. Our project was an experiment because there was randomness involved and we had control over our treatment groups. It would've been an observational study if we didn't have any control over our treatment groups.The challenges of running a real experiment and collecting data was difficult for a couple of reasons. We didn't know exactly what to expect but we avoided being bias as much as we could have. There was an outlier but thankfully it didn't make much of a difference when averaging out the completed data. The part of the project that was the most fun was watching the teams participate in our game. It was exciting to see how fast they could get it done and to see who would be the winner. This was definitely favorite project because we actually got to do games. It was fun going around and seeing all of the different challenges there were. Plus we got to eat the leftover skittles from the project so that was probable the best part.
