This week we had a very informative presentation about Animal Vision by Explore Science Club leader Nehal. She taught the students about the light spectrum, rods and cones, and the variety of ways that animals see things differently than humans. With a new appreciation for their sense of sight, the students looked for our daffodil bulbs growing shoots in the school garden.
