Brain Games by Dr. Jerry Pratt, IHMC

March 23, 2019

The March Science Saturday topic was “Brain Games” and was presented by Dr. Jerry Pratt, Senior Research Scientist at IHMC. Students were amazed by the ways in which our our powers of observation and our various senses 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.
