I have a huge range of technical, amazing or just plane interesting bits of kit. Here is a snippet of just some of these great things, I don't use them all the shows but... Information and advice about some of my Scientific Equipment and some other things too

I have lots of toys, and here is a little about some of them, but there are many more, it depends what show I am doing.

With out doubt one of my favorites and something I have learnt to play like no one else.

Pinhole Cameras

Pinhole cameras are the simplest form of camera, they do not have a lens but focus the light through a very small hole.If the camera has light sensitive photographic paper in it then a photo can be taken.
The paper is removed and developed to give a negative and then a print is taken.

Do Science Ltd Pinhole Camera Project

(this photograph was taken with a pinhole camera as part of the project)

We can offer a pinhole camera activity for a class for a day, at the end of it the pupils will have taken photos, developed them and printed the pictures.
The chemicals used are standard black and white developing solutions and are not considered highly hazardous.

This activity is suitable for Key stage 3 and 4 and over.
