Your senses

Visitors test their motor skills against visual stimuli at Researchers’ Night in Skellefteå 2008.

Visitors can test how their senses react to different experiences. This could, for example, involve optical illusions, different tastes and taking part in sensory experiences while blindfolded. There should be experts on hand to explain what is happening in the body.

Target groups: Particularly suitable for a young target group, although adults usually want to take part as well.

Preparations: Appoint someone who can run the activity. Decide on a venue and format. Organise the necessary materials and experts. Market the activity.

Challenges: Getting people to stop and participate.

Benefits: Interesting activity related to everyday life and one that initiates a dialogue.
