Y6VO STEM Week

Year 6 have designed and made a pin hole camera. Carefully measuring and safely making the cuts needed, we constructed this exciting device.

We have been learning about light travelling in straight lines and how we all actually see objects upside down (I know; unbelievable). It is actually our brains that ‘turn’ the images the correct way round, after the eye has sent the information through the optic nerve.

The pin hole camera works in a similar way. Finally we can see what our eye sees, before our brain gets hold of the information!

Would you like a try? Just ask year 6 for their instructions, tips and guide!
