The use of games and pictorial illusion was not only fun and exciting but very educational.

This was the comment made by Mirima Natacoko of Cuvu College during a demonstration by School of Social Science under the Faculty of Arts, Law and Education at the USP open day yesterday.

“The illusion can be deceiving if you don’t use your mind to focus and think,” Ms Natacoko said.

Ms Natacoko found the pictorial illusion interesting and not something that you learn every day.

Senior Lecturer of Social Science, James Johnson said: “I’m showing illusion to students because sometimes, the mind plays tricks on us.

“I want them to think about how the mind tricks them so they can think differently.

He said the exercise was to show students how they can think differently so they can apply it while studying.

“I have been around in USP for a long time and I love working with young students.

Mr Johnson said social science offers students an opportunity to learn about human behaviour that people don’t normally think about.

About 8000 students from 77 high schools were part of the USP open day. Edited by Paula Tuvuki
