This site, within the Exploratorium's larger site, offers a range of
presentations, learning styles, and perspectives for discovering what an eye
actually is and how it works. Audio, visuals, video, and text provide
information, steps and viewpoints that will students young and old gain insight
about sight. This site could be used by teachers to help elementary and middle
school students really discover information about the eye and enhance what
studies may be occurring in the actual classroom.

The organization and presentation of this site make it easy to navigate and
select the options you wish to research.

Technical Remarks:

RelPlayer and QuickTime 2.0 or higher for both Macs and PCs is needed to view
the eye dissection demonstration. Acrobat Reader is needed if you wish to
download the printable steps and eye information made avaialble at this site.
