When the control lamps on the exhibit are off, push the rods upwards with both hands into the magnetic holder.
Now put your hands in position by grasping the rods but not yet touching them. If you now step on the release pedal and wait until the rods fall out of their holder after a few seconds, you test your reaction ability by trying to grip the falling rods as quickly as possible.

In this experiment your reaction speed will be tested. You can read your reaction time from the scale behind the rods.
If the reactivity is good, the reaction time is 0.15 to 0.20 seconds.
