  • Description:

    Have you ever wondered what makes our eyes work or how we see? We’ll dissect a cow's eye to take a closer look at the organ that helps us see the world. How is it similar to and different from our eyes, and those of other animals? Learn the parts of the eye and how they work together to illuminate our sight. While exploring the lens, we’ll also talk about why some of us need glasses and how we can keep our eyes and our vision healthy. These 20-30 minute interactive programs take place on the 2nd floor of the Museum. They include brief presentations highlighting university research with engaging hands-on activities. They are suitable for adults and children, ages 5 and up.
