Have you ever wondered how optical illusions work, or how your brain receives signals from your nose, eyes, ears, fingers, and tongue? This is your chance to learn in-depth knowledge about each of the five senses and how the brain works. This class will include STEM activities and many labs as we explore muscle response, touch receptors, the science of smell, sound and vibrations, optical illusions, color, and brain responses. The end of the class will feature an Escape Room activity where we put all of our learning into practice!
