Day 61: Pinhole Camera Building

Thursday, November 6, 2014

  1. How fun! Images please! We have a bunch of calipers with the vernier scale on them and it always takes a while to teach them how to read it. I usually randomly put it at mark and pass it around to see what people say it is.

    Do you take points off for the robot image not being correct (the feet should point to the right)?
