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.
