国分寺|インターナショナルキンダーガーデン|own version of a camera

To end our last science project for our Sights and Sounds Series we made our own version of a camera.

In this project, we wanted to find out what kind of image is formed as we take a peek from the small hole of our camera. Also, we wanted to make the kids ask why is it that we see this kind of image.

Our materials for this project include: a magnifying glass, cardboard papers, scotch tape or packaging tape and colorful washi tapes to decorate.

As the kids finished assembling and decorating their cameras, they noticed that the image they see is inverted. “Ah! You’re upside down!”

Then one kid started asking, “Eh! Why?” But his curiosity did not end there. He tried tilting his head hoping that by doing so the inverted image that he had seen will go back to its orginal position but to no avail.

We found out that the camera operates in the same way that our eyes work. When light enters through the magnifying lens, it bends and this bending makes an image appear upside down. However, our brain processes the image in such a way that we see things upright. In the case of a real camera, there is a mirror inside that projects the image upright so that we do not see it in an inverted position.

And there goes that “Aaaaah!” once again.
