Light & Vision
Light, and the way humans perceive it, have a lot of fascinating science behind them. At the Science Factory, you can interact with light in whole new ways.
- Check out amazing optical illusions and pictures that make your brain say, “Yowza!” or some similar expression of surprise.
- Look at things normally so small as to be hidden from your eyes. It could be your skin, a sponge, or even your eye (but thinking about looking at your own eye, that’ll keep you up at night.)
- Or head into the dusky gray of the Lights and Lenses room, if you dare!!! BWAH-HAH-HAH-HAH. All right, you probably dare.
