Pinhole Cameras: a cross-curricular project with art & design, photography, science and ICT
In this collaborative project that involved art and design, photography, science and ICT, Year 9 pupils at South Dartmoor Community College learned about the theory of light, vision and pinhole cameras before putting this into practice by taking their own pinhole camera photographs around the college.
