The Effect of Humor on Learning in a Planetarium.
Fisher, Martin S.
Science Education, v81 n6 p703-13 Nov 1997
The effect of humor on retention of information was examined at the planetarium at Ohio's Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, OH. Results showed that the visitors who saw a humorous show retained less of the instructional material and scored lower on the test than the visitors who saw a nonhumorous show. (Author/DKM)
