Face to Face


ASK Magazine March 2023. Why do so many animals have faces? How did they get that way? And does your robot need one?

Let’s face it. Faces can be fascinating. This edition of ASK Magazine focuses on faces. From emojis to emotions, face the facts about faces. 


What are faces for? For humans, four of our five senses reside on our faces (ears, nose, mouth, and eyes), but they serve many more purposes than that. Learn about how animal’s faces have evolved, how humans communicate with facial expressions, and what functions the parts of your face fulfill. You’ll also learn how facial recognition programs work, in which ways every face is unique—even for twins, and which creatures don’t have faces. Every edition of ASK has enlightening and fun facts, vibrant and helpful images, and engaging activities.
