Students have had an intense start to TaP with many experiential learning activities to help them explore the nature of light, the senses and their impact on perception, the notion of truth and perceptions of reality. During the miniMOD experience they engaged in a diverse range of ideas exploring emerging technologies and possibilities about humanity and the near future.
Next term in TaP, students will examine some of the theories about light, chemical reactions, biological processes and the purpose of language and images. They will explore scientific knowledge as a collection of overlapping models, each with their own limitations in describing nature.
“Beyond a doubt, truth bears the same relation to falsehood as light to darkness.” – Leonardo da Vinci
“Language is to the mind, more than light is to the eye.” – William Gibson
“Thinking: The talking of the soul with itself.” – Plato
