Optical Illusions Program on Tuesday-You Can’t Believe Your Eyes!

The Virtual STEAM Club is back on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 4 pm!  This Tuesday, September 22, join us for Optical Illusions-You Can't Believe Your Eyes!.  

Participate in this hands-on program through SCCLD Facebook Live.  After the program occurs, you will still be able to view it on SCCLD Facebook or any of the library Facebook pages.

After we learn a little about how optical illusions work, we will do some experiments and make some of our own illusions.  This is a hands-on program that you can do at home along with me during the broadcast!  Here is a list of supplies you may want to have on hand during this program!

Supplies for First Experiments:

Clear Water Glass Pitcher with Water Unsharpened Pencil Penny Small Saucer Paper with Stripes (can make by hand) Paper with One Arrow (2 inches from bottom) Paper with Two Arrows (2 inches & 6 inches from bottom)
