Space is limited to 10.
In this camp, we will be investigate how we see, and the tricks that take place between our eyes and our brain. We will learn about optical illusions, color, and how we see movement from still images. We will be creating our own optical illusions and our own moving pictures.
We offer five stand-alone STEAM camps, during which campers will investigate the science, technology, engineering, art and math of a different topic. Each day will be spent doing hands on projects and making art. Campers are welcome to attend for one or more weeks.
