Teen Science Cafe: The Eyes Have It

  • Friday, November 01, 2019
  • 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Dr. Arghavan Almony

Join us as we explore the evolution of sight and the anatomy and function of the eye at this eye-mazing Café. Meet Dr. Arghavan Almony to hear her inspirational story of growing up as a refugee whose personal experiences inspired her to help people and become a surgeon. She’ll share her passion for the sense of sight and we’ll delve into the inner workings of the eye, get tricked by some optical illusions and identify changes in the evolution of eye anatomy across different animal species. We hope to SEE you there!
