The project: “Sleep – one-third of life” invites Students to explore their sleeping habits and to identify their Chronotypes (are they Early or Late Chronotypes?). The students will track their nighttime sleep patterns using a “sleep diary”. On the basis of the data, they will investigate the effects of sleeping habits on their daily functioning.

The project will be conducted in collaboration with Professor Tamar Shochat from the Department of Nursing and Prof. Eran Tauber from the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Haifa University. The project is led by Dr. Hani Swirski, a member of the TCSS Center and a  research fellow at the Science Communication Group at the Technion.

We invite you to take part in the project and investigate your students’ sleeping habits in modern multi-screen and artificial light society … and help science answer the question:  Why we sleep?

The project is designed for middle and high school.
