Looking at light through a pinhole
Author(s): Nancy Magnani; Karen Neville; Matthew Donnelly

Paper Abstract

By learning about the principles of optics, Connecticut high school students will be able to produce high quality photographs using pinhole cameras. In this project, a class of photography students has partnered with a class of physics students to learn about optics, build pinhole cameras, use commercially available pinhole cameras and produce quality photographs. In this paper, the results of this student partnership under the guidance of the Laser and Fiber Optic Technology program at Three Rivers Community College and EASTCONN, a regional education service center will be explained.
