Vision and Optics: Light and Lenses
Learners gain a conceptual comprehension of the functioning of the Human Eye in relation to optics and optical vision correction. They explore optics with light sources and various lenses, relating these to visual acuity, accommodation, near point, blind spots, focal length, object/image distance as well as testing their vision with a Snellan Eye Chart.

How Are the Eyes of Different Organisms Adapted for Sight?
Students compare/contrast the human eye to two other organisms. They use micro viewers to identify the human eye structures, complete a Venn diagram worksheet, identify the function of each eye structure, and answer discussion questions.

There's More to Light than Meets the Eye
Students explore the concept that not all light is visible to the human eye. Although UV light is not visible, it can still be harmful, causing sunburns or skin cancer. They use special beads to detect UV light around the school. Students then conduct an experiment to determine what types of materials are best for blocking UV light on Earth, as well as in space.

What is Color?
"To understand the phenomenon of color, it helps to think about light as a wave." This is a brief and very informative instructional video on what color is and why we are able to see it. Your young scientists will learn such terms as the period and frequency of waves, as well explore how light is absorbed and what colors we are able to see.

Entering the Eye
The human eye is the focus of this biology PowerPoint. The presentation takes a virtual trip inside of the human eye and allows learners to view the various parts of the eye. The best part (for me) are all of the optical illusions that are embedded in the slide show.

Intelligent Design and Evolution
This video about a delicate, often controversial topic, does not argue for one area or another, but does talk about the random process versus design of an involved organ. The lecturer talks freely about how infinite complexity such as with the Mandelbrot set, is an example of the most "intelligent design" so far.
