As students of Language, Philosophy and Science we not only describe the world as we see it, but also challenge others by asking ‘Why’ and ‘What if?’
In Truth and Perception, 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. By exploring the same phenomena through these different levels of abstraction, they will confront the notion that science is about understanding doubt as much as discovering truth.
Today’s ‘Immersion’ activity involved students rotating through 9 different stations, experiencing optical illusions, sensations of taste, hearing, balance, temperature, and spatial awareness!
