Dalkeith: Colour Wheel Illusion

24882990_10100777473289574_1781538413_oAnother take on optical illusions was explored by Dalkeith Elementary’s Budding Scientists to end session 1! Students drew colour wheels on paper, and tested them by poking a hole in the centre and placing them on a pencil, which was supported by a cup. When the wheels were spun extremely quickly on the axis of the pencil, everything blurred together and “tricked our eyes” into thinking the paper was a shade of grey and not in fact six different colours. Who knew our eyes had so many abilities!
