Detailed description

This passive program is based on a paper I wrote during winter quarter as part of the IGE capstone project. This display walks the viewer through the major parts of my paper and introduces them to the role that perception plays in the creation and development of scientific theory. Included is a discussion of the lenses that we wear that can conceal or obscure scientific fact.
