The Flights of Fancy Pinhole Camera Kit is an ideal science kit for enquiring young minds. Children get to build a camera, then take and develop photos with it just as it was done when cameras were first invented
Slot the grooved squares of wood together to form a tight, light box (either glue or hold together with the elastic bands provided), attach the shutter cover to the front, then assemble the interior box from the pre-folded black card and insert, finally carefully create the pinhole (pin provided!)
Then comes the fun - load the light sensitive photographic paper into the camera in total darkness using only a red safety light for guidance which the kids can make by covering a torch with the piece of red cellophane included in the kit.
Next, choose a subject then take a photograph by opening the shutter keeping the box perfectly still for the allotted time. Now it is time to get back to the dark room to develop the picture using the developer and fixer fluids provided.
A fun science kit for older children that makes a great gift and may just inspire a life long love of photography!ï¾
Includes clear and concise instructions and a fascinating booklet on the history of photography. Suggested for children 12 years old upwards or adults can enjoy this as a joint project with younger children.
