Saturday Morning Science! Making a Pinhole Camera

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent

Pinhole Camera
Children will make their own pinhole camera to take home and learn about the properties of light that make this possible.

Essentially a pinhole camera projects an image onto a screen. The device consists of a box or a room with a tiny hole in one side. Light from outside the box/ room passes through the hole and strikes the interior surface; the image is upside down, but is reproduced faithfully in terms of color and perspective. The image can be projected onto paper, and if traced will provide a very accurate representation.


Price is per child attending, parent or guardian can attend class with child for no additional fee. $30 for non-members, $20 for members of BioCurious*


Saturday Morning Science is for ages 5 and up. Under 7 require an adult present to assist them with the lab.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
