Day 41: Pinhole Camera Construction

Thursday, 15 October 2015

Two classes built their pinhole cameras. To streamline the process this year over past years, I made two modifications: 1) dropped the optimal pinhole diameter calculation and 2) had kids only bring a container they could easily make light tight. My personal favorites are metal tins or Quaker Oats cans. I provided the other materials (pins, aluminum cans, and black spray paint.

Pringles cans rarely work, just a word of warning.

We also did a quick research session at the start of building day:

Each group shared out to the class on their research question.

We built in a single 70 minute class period.
