This is a behavioural expreriment that children can do using woodlice. It teaches them scientific and analytical techniques as well as the behaviour of woodlice.
When woodlice were passively rotated through 90°, rather than making the usual forced active turn, they did not show turn alternation. Also, passive rotation t.
