CU Science Discovery presents this fun and fascinating workshop designed to teach students about animal eye structure and function. Teens will engage in a discussion about animal vision and learn about animal adaptation as it relates to vision and eye structure. By dissecting a cow’s eye, students will locate and identify the optic nerve, lens, cornea, sclera and iris. A cow eye is very similar to the eyes of all mammals including humans, and by dissecting and examining the anatomy of a preserved cow eye, participants will learn how their eyes form images of the world around them and send these images to their brains. Space is limited; registration required. Please visit our online calendar to register.
