    does color effect memory… show numbers with different colors and see if there are certain colors that people remember. Afterwards you can administer a questionnaire and what their favorite color is.

    Can we learn in our sleep… have people listen to a CD of recorded info. while they are sleeping and then administer a simple quiz the next day to see if they learned anything

    Do people follow a crowd (a known test)… have 5 people look at 2 pictures and make an obvious observation that is not true (line A is longer then line B) but the 6th person is not in on the experiment and see if they follow the group.

    Here is one

    Put a sun glasses and go to a mall or public place, and act like you are a blind person who needs help. To test how people react when a blind person acts in the mall looking for clothes…

    See if anyone will help a blind person!
