Can you really believe your eyes? In this fun workshop all about visual illusions, you’ll find out why what we see isn’t always what’s really there. Ginny Smith from Braintastic! Science will show you how to make your own illusions to try out on your friends and family. Along the way you’ll also discover how important your brain is to see the world around you and how illusions can help us understand how it works.

This is a workshop, so assemble the necessary materials and prepare to get hands-on.


A science writer and presenter with expertise in psychology & neuroscience, Ginny has a talent for making the complex comprehensible and a passion for brain science. She founded Braintastic! Science, which produces spectacular science shows and resources to help young people understand and get the best out of their brains. She writes science books for DK publishing, and her first solo book for adults, ‘Overloaded’, about brain chemistry, is now out. She also shares her skills as a science communication trainer and consultant, providing scientists and organizations with techniques to grab their audiences’ attention, and keep it.
