Our second Science Friday lab was a bit quieter as the children were very focused on the tasks measuring their right- or left- handedness. They caught a beach ball, looked at objects with each eye, kicked a ball into a soccer goal, jumped, wrote their name and cut with scissors with each hand. After the experiments, they tallied up their handedness score. At another table, children enjoyed looking at optical illusions and learned how our brain misinterprets what we see.
