AbstractMy thesis was with Dr. Eggers specifically I worked on the Arizona RETINA Project. The goals of the RETINA project is to study how light adaptation works in the eye and to inform the public about the eye, the latest research about the eye, and to encourage a love of science. My project was a research based outreach project. The goal of the project was to produce an experiment and lesson that most effectively communicates the research that is occurring right now by Dr. Egger’s lab and other labs as well the basic process of how the eye works. One of the most important aspects of science is disseminating the information we are learning to not just other scientists, but to the general public which is why this project is so valuable. The outreach learning techniques that I used evidence based practices in order to best inform the students.
