Year 8 scientists have fun with shadows, pinhole cameras and light refraction during lockdown
Year 8 scientists have successfully completed their key stage 3 light topic, utilising the online jam boards as well as finding a great use for their old toilet rolls! Mr Short’s class created pinhole cameras to illustrate the focusing of light rays using toilet rolls and foil. You could always have a go at home (https://electronics.howstuffworks.com/question131.htm).
They were able to plot some data using their jam boards as well as looking at how light travels and the fun shadows that can be formed when light is blocked by an opaque object.
