  • As part of E011 was turned into a giant ‘pinhole camera’.  Firstly the room had all of the blinds pulled down and the central window was covered with black paper.  The paper had a small hole cut in it  and then the students had to wait a short while, until their eyes adjusted to the limited light, and then they saw the ‘camera’ at work!  The picture (taken with a digital camera) shows the viewing screen hanging in the middle of the lab and you can see that the image on it is upside down, clearly shows the sky and trees and is in full colour!
