Gross and Engrossing

I love it when our students go into the science lab and learn hands-on. The juniors and seniors in the physics class are studying optics, so they dissected cows’ eyeballs to better understand refraction, lenses, and the anatomy of the eye.

To some it was gross, to some it was engrossing, but to all it was fascinating.

They followed up their lab with a visit to the Lehmann Eye Center, where our own Dr. Tim Young showed them the laser technology used to perform LASIK surgery.
