In this activity, learners create a simple “top” from a CD, marble and bottle cap, and use it as a spinning platform for a variety of illusion-generating patterns.
In this activity, a lightbulb is placed in front of a concave mirror. The actual lightbulb is not visible to the viewer, but the viewer can see the mirror image of the lightbulb formed in space.
In this activity, learners investigate color vision as well as plan and conduct their own experiments.
In this activity, learners explore their eye pupils and how they change.
In this activity, learners discuss and investigate how cameras, telescopes, and their own eyes use light in similar ways.
In this activity, learners conduct a simple test to find their blind spot.
In this activity, learners create a cylindrical mirror to see themselves as others see them.
In this activity about light and refraction, learners make a lens and magnifying glass by filling a bowl with water.
In this activity about light and perception, learners create pictures in thin air.
In this activity, learners calculate the width (horizontal diameter) of the blind spot on their retina. Learners make a blind spot tester using a piece of notebook paper.
In this activity (1st on the page), learners find their blind spot--the area on the retina without receptors that respond to light.
In this activity about afterimages, learners explore what happens when receptor cells called cones in your eye's retina get tired.
In this activity, learners investigate the sense of sight and develop and conduct their own experiments.
In this activity about light and perception, learners discover how a flash of light can create a lingering image called an "afterimage" on the retina of the eye.
In this activity about vision and optical illusions, learners conduct a simple test to demonstrate how our eyes create "afterimages." Learners stare at a black cardboard bat for at least 30 seconds an
In this data collection and analysis activity, learners evaluate fish physiology and ecology using vision research data from Dr.
In this activity, learners discover that it's difficult to distinguish between two different shades of gray when they aren't separated by a boundary.
How can you make one shade of gray look like two? By putting it against two different color backgrounds! This activity allows learners to perform this sleight of hand very easily.
In this activity about light and perception, learners create and observe moire patterns.
