Science Sunday: Checking out an Infrared Camera

Welcome back to another edition of Science Sunday where we are exploring another piece of the Forest of Illusions Exhibit. Forest of Illusions was designed to put your eyes and mind to the test, explore color and see our world in an entirely new perspective. One of our favorite parts of the exhibit is the infrared camera, which we are going to explore a little further today. Check out how this camera works and some fun ways you can interact with it on your next visit to the Connecticut Science Center. Full video below to learn more.


There is so much more Science Sunday to explore. Check out the full gallery of segments on our blog:
