WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING?
This week Room 9 ran a Rock, Paper, Scissors Challenge with Rooms 7 and 8 to determine if the game is pure luck or if there is some skill involved. We needed lots of data to ensure we had a fair test, so we played over 6,000 games. What we found was that skill seemed to play a part as some students had as many as 30 best of 11 games won, compared to many other students with as few as 4, 5 or 6 games won. It was certainly a head scratcher for those of us that thought it was pure luck.
