Women and Girls in Science day

Yesterday, 11th February, was Women and Girls in Science Day. To mark the occasion, Y6 had a very special visitor: Victoria Smith from Victoria Smith Opticians.

She told us all about her career and explained lots of the science behind how our eyes work and why people might need glasses.

Checking which colours we can see
Trying glasses which gave an idea of the symptoms of different eye conditions.
Trying out £D glasses – Doesn’t Frank look cool?!
Trying on different glasses for fun.
Trying on a special device that allowed very partially sighted people to watch the TV. It made us look like we had massive eye balls!
