Create 3D glasses and use them to explore color, light and optics. Fool your brain into 'seeing' three dimensions on a flat surface!
In this activity, learners investigate color vision as well as plan and conduct their own experiments.
In this activity (12th on the page), learners investigate their ability to discriminate (see) different colors.
In this activity (6th on the page), learners investigate how photoreceptors in the eye (rods and cones) "adapt" to low light conditions.
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, learners investigate the sense of sight and develop and conduct their own experiments.
In this activity, learners conduct an experiment to test how fast they can react. Learners try to catch a piece of paper with a ruler printed on it (or a ruler) as quickly as they can.
In this activity (16th on the page), learners play a variation of the "I Spy" game to explore color. Learners work in teams with each team assigned a color.
In this activity (13th on the page), learners complete a simple illusion trick to see through their own hand.
In this optics activity, learners build an animation tool to make mini movies. When you spin a phenakistascope, the pictures move so quickly that your eyes and brain can't separate the images.
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.
In this activity, learners investigate visual perception as well as plan and conduct their own experiments.
In this activity, learners explore how their depth perception would be affected if they only had one eye. Learners work in pairs and attempt to drop a penny in a cup with one eye covered.
In this activity (3rd on the page), learners conduct a series of tests to find out which of their eyes is more dominant.
In this activity, learners make a Benham Top to explore visual illusions and optics.
In this easy demonstration (3rd on the page), learners explore depth perception by conducting a test with two pencils.
These two activities (4th on the page) demonstrate the importance of two eyes in judging depth.
In this activity (17th on the page), learners investigate why you cannot see colors in dim light.
