March 2020 NEWSLETTER

Kia ora to all our friends, supporters and visitors

In case all this is new to you, lightcolourvision.org is a non-profit project exploring light, colour, vision and also asks the question, how can we see more? In a nutshell, it’s all about making sense and developing our views of ourselves and the world. It’s designed as a resource for students, teachers, educators and researchers of all ages.

We launched lightcolourvision.org nine months ago and it’s a rollercoaster. The site grows every day as we add new content and functionality. Find out what we have been up to since our previous newsletter in the updates below. To see the site for the first time, or to see how it’s developed since your last visit, just follow the link below.

2019: Launch and proof of concept

By the end of the year, the site contained over 550 pages and visitor numbers had grown to 12,000 per month. The table below provides a summary of the resources now available to visitors (all resources are free to download).

EXPLORING LIGHT, COLOUR, VISION AND HOW TO SEE MORE?


LIGHT! Without light we see nothing! Without light, our eyes can not function at all! It is the fact that our eyes respond to light that allows us to gather the information needed to not only see colour but also to make sense of the world. Light has existed since the beginning of time and will still fill the universe long after planet Earth and its inhabitants are forgotten.
