Science Week 14th – 17th November 2023

Light diffraction through a viewer

Pinhole camera made with two paper cups

Bring your primary 5th & 6th Classes to investigate ‘light‘.  We will take a look at some images from the collections of early exploration of light.  We will get some of the students to make a quick pinhole camera to prove light travels in straight lines, will see how we can make a hologram using a smart phone and look through a diffraction viewer to see how light is made of all the colours of the spectrum.

The students will get into small teams at the end and be tested with a fun quiz!
