Build Periscope & Pinhole Camera | School Science Projects

  • Make a pinhole camera to understand about:
    • rectilinear propagation of light
    • formation of an image on the screen when light passes through a pin hole
    Make a projector to differentiate opaque, transparent and translucent objects by passing light through them.
    Make a periscope to see how submarines use reflection through mirrors to view objects that are above the sea level

Make your own Camera!

2015, The International Year of Light, prompted us to celebrate light by putting it to one of its best uses in recent times: The Camera!

Not devoid of fun and action, this practical project teaches your child the construction, usage and application of two very important devices: the pinhole camera and the periscope!

With the kit’s primary apparatus: the pinhole camera’s, learn in just a few minutes, how to create the world’s first light-proof box that can display a variety of pictures. With this project, your child will embrace their creative side, with our aid of higher-order thinking and scientific development.  

The periscope, a crucial application in submarines and other navigational devices, uses mirror reflections to locate and view areas that are far out of the eye’s reach. By using properly-angled mirrors in our periscope apparatus, your child will learn in just a few minutes how to create a periscope, as well as use and understand its applications!

Finally, use our very own DIY projector to use light to differentiate between opaque, transparent and translucent objects!

This project is important to help children build confidence and a larger understanding of the basic STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics) skills. With practical implementation and an involving subject, this project is quintessential to the child’s syllabus and also helps nurture a worldlier outlook of their academic subjects!

The celebration of Light in Science!

Without light, humans would not exist – and so wouldn’t many, many of their inventions. Today, we present, explain and display to you two such critical inventions: the pinhole camera and the periscope!

This fun and enjoyable Do-It-Yourself project comes with the practical apparatus to build and view the first ever light-proof box that ironically, uses light in itself to display a variety of pictures. With this project, help your child embrace their creative side, and aid their higher-order thinking and scientific understanding of simple concepts.  

Next up is the ingenious invention of the periscope, an important application in submarines and other navigational devices. It uses mirror reflections to locate and view areas that are far out of the eye’s reach. By using the properly-angled mirrors in our periscope apparatus, your child will learn in just a few minutes how to create a periscope, as well as use and understand its applications!

Finally, use our very own DIY projector to use light to differentiate between opaque, transparent and translucent objects!

This project is important to help children build confidence and a larger understanding of the basic STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics) skills. With practical implementation and an involving subject, this project is quintessential to the child’s syllabus and also helps nurture a worldlier outlook of their academic subjects!
