Hey Wildcat Scientists! On Wednesday, January 13th at 3:40 pm we will be having a crash course/discussion on Sensation and Perception. Our psychology expert, Julienne, will guide us on the journey where we can explore and understand our own senses and how they help or even trick us in life. We promise it’s going to be interesting, because you can also test your own perception with some fun tests! Check out MS Teams for more details.
