Students were amazed by the ways in which our senses of sight and balance and our powers of observation could surprise us. They performed various hands-on experiments in optical illusions, 3D perception, and memory, and they witnessed some magic tricks that exploit the attention and processing limitations of the brain. This season of Science Saturdays is sponsored by the Gulf Power and by the Escambia County Sherrif’s Office with State Law Enforcement Trust Fund Monies. Students from Gulf Breeze, Pensacola, and West Florida High Schools volunteered as assistants.
