KENTUCKY (May 7th – 13th – Toilet Paper XRAY Tube)

INGREDIENTS

• Toilet Paper Tube

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: Using your right hand, hold the toilet paper tube
against your right eye, so you can see through the tube. Keep
both eyes open.
STEP 2: Hold your left hand, palm toward your face, hand wide
open, against the left side of the tube, keep both eyes open, and
observe. What do you see? Describe how this model allows you
to receive different types of information through your sense of
sight, process the information in your brain, and respond to the
information.

EXPLANATION

As you look through the toilet paper x-ray tube, a hole appears
in your left hand. This is an optical illusion caused by your brain
taking what your right eye observes, what your left eye
observes, and putting the images together to create a picture.
This confuses your brain, creating a picture with a hole in your
hand.

SCIENCE SAFETY

PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any
science experiment.

• ALWAYS have an adult present.
• ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing any
experiment.
• NEVER eat or drink anything while doing any experiment.
• REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small
balls, balloons, and other small parts. Those objects
could become a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to
perform those experiments using these objects. Any child
can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons.
Keep uninflated or broken balloons away from children.

Our “science guy” Jason Lindsey has his lab coat and safety shield on, he says he is working on an experiment with a fireball and an explosion.

Thanks,

Jason Lindsey
