Science at Cal - Bay Area Science Festival Discovery Day at Oracle Park

Sunday, April 24, 2022

After two years, the Bay Area Science Festival's Discovery Day at Oracle Park is back! Science at Cal will be there with an activity called "Brain Games." See how our complex human brains can be fooled with just a few sheets of paper and movement! In this activity, participants design, build, and test an optical illusion of their own. The optical illusion occurs when we are tricked into seeing two separate images as one image when the images switch rapidly. This is due to something called “persistence of vision,” the same phenomenon that allows your brain to stitch the individual frames of a movie scene together into one seamless movement in your mind. Put your creativity and brain to the test at the Science at Cal exhibitor booth!

Stay tuned! More details coming soon!
