Johnians of class 9-12th had an enthralling experience visiting the Museum of Illusions and National Science Centre on 19th August 2023. The first highlight of this educational trip was the Museum of Illusion- It Is home to a collection of immersive, interactive, and distinctly incomprehensible exhibits based on science, math, and psychology. The little learners were prompted to learn more about the tricks of perception, and how the human brain works as one progresses, through each exhibit. The museum offered visual, photographic, and interactive illusions that blew everyone’s mind away! Amusing and awesome tricks paired with different illusions helped the learners to understand how perception is influenced by science, vision, and stimuli that the human mind receives. The best part of the visit was the Vortex Tunnel, where students walked through a spinning cylinder that produced an illusion of disorientation. Another popular exhibit was the Mirror Maze, where students navigated through a maze of mirrors, attempting to find their way out.
Next highlight of the trip was The National Science Centre which is one of the largest science centres in Asia and is spread across four sprawling floors with eight galleries and several other sections for all age groups showing the wonders of science and technology. It helped children to explore, gain hands-on knowledge and experience through many dimensions of science and the impact it has on our lives.
Overall, the trip was a fun-filled educational experience for all the students. It allowed them to explore the fascinating world of illusions and learn about the science behind them interactively and engagingly. The students came back with a new appreciation for the power of perception and how it can be manipulated.
