How do they work? Let’s look at 3D images (Young Scholars Years 5 – 9)
Ever wondered how 3D movies work on a flat screen? This workshop will present students with the opportunity to explore how our brains use visual cues to help us to perceive depth. We will explore binocular vision, depth perception and the use of red/green lenses. Then students will design, construct and test their own ‘stereoscope,’ as well as creating their own 3D images using just green and red lines!
Location: Queensland Academies, Science, Mathematics and Technology Campus (78 Bywong Street, Toowong)
Date: Saturday, 10 June 2017
Time: 11.30 am – 1.30 pm
Students are required to wear comfortable clothes, enclosed shoes, with hair tied back, and bring a drink and a snack. All other materials are supplied.
This workshop seeks to:
- explicitly explore the concept of function
- strengthen curiosity skills
- provide students with the opportunity to develop research skills including those associated with making observations.
