Hi everyone, 

 

My name is Sierra Vidaure, I'm currently a junior at the University of Arizona studying computational neuroscience. Previously, however, I was a physics major, so I definitely still have a budding interest in the physical aspects of the brain like neurons and electrical pulses.

Hi! My name is Hannie Lynch and I am a sophomore at the University of Arizona this year. I am studying Neuroscience and Cognitive Science, with minors in both Theater and Computer Science. I am so excited to be a part of the AZ Retina Project group. Educating myself and other interested parties about scientific studies and current research is an activity that I've always loved, but haven't gotten much of a chance to do in college. I'm glad to have a group of other students that are invested in the project and enthusiastic over this opportunity as well!

Have kids that are interested in the careers in ocular medicine? Have them try out the free Eye Doctor! app. In this app, kids can select from a choice of patients, and complete tasks that people with ocular professions would do. These tasks include virtually washing eyes, checking for color blindness, testing vision, and selecting a pair of glasses. Have your child try it out and see them have fun!
