About the Event

There's more to sight than what meets the eye. Take a look into our Sights Unseen exhibit for some illuminating science around eyes, light, and optics. Just wait until you see what we have in store this day!

What to watch:

Story Time: "What if You Had Animal Eyes?" by Sandra Markle with Jason Hammond

11:15 am on YouTube

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see through an animal's eyes? Now you can imagine it more scientifically as you learn how and why certain animals see differently than humans as Jason reads us this story.

Brain Break: The Spectroscope with Brizeira Perez

12:00 pm on Instagram and YouTube

Want to see rainbows everywhere? Every light you see is made up of different color wavelengths! Join Briz as she shows you how to create a simple device that will have you seeing rainbows outside and inside!

Materials: cardboard tube, scissors, cardstock, CD, tape, market, and an adult with a box cutter or x-acto knife.

Educator Moment: "O Wow! Moment: The Camera Obscura" with Mr. O

4:00 pm on Facebook*

Did you know that our eyes actually see the world upside down, but our brains re-interpret it right side up? Join Mr. O as he explores eye physiology, the fascinating physics of optics and lenses, and shows you how to build a camera obscura – an ancient device that projects the world upside down!

Materials: an empty cereal box, tape, scissors, ruler, pencil, a compass, hand lens, and tracing or wax paper.

*Catch the premiere of this episode on KPRC during the 7 am news broadcast on Saturday, March 13!

We'll be celebrating Spring Break all week long. See what else we have planned!
