Did you ever wonder why we have two eyes and not just one? What animal has the best sense of sight? How has evolution effected our sense of sight and do all animals see colours the same?
We did, so Junior Professors Hazel and Marco went off on a fact finding mission. They met with Professor Aoife McLysaght, Professor of Genetics at Trinity College Dublin, to find out about the amazing science behind our sense of sight.
Join us to hear all about our sense Sight and make some unexpected discoveries, try scientific experiments, enjoy music, fun facts, animals and loads of silliness.
