Long Road focuses on eyes for Big Biology Day

Posted on

BB Day 336 amendedHow do optical illusions work? Why is our vision is not as colourful as we might imagine? Those were just two of the aspects of vision covered by Long Road students at this year’s Big Biology Day. The group was interested in how we perceive the world through our eyes, and the role of the brain in creating vision.

The event, which is sponsored by MedImmume, the Microbiology Society and the Cambridge Science Festival, enables members of the public to catch up with new research in Biology and to find out how the study of Biology can help us understand what makes us tick.

Our students very much enjoyed their day: here are some of their comments:

BB Day 333“I thought that it was an inspiring day for both members of the public and helpers. It was nice to be part of a group in a big social activity like this. It definitely helps to meet new people.” Alexander Stone

“It was good to see how interested all the public were in what we were talking about and how all age groups got involved, particularly some of the younger children.” Rebecca Groves

 “I thought the day was great – we had lots of fun activities for people to do!” Shannah Kerrigan
