    Light Experiment

    Here is a simple light experiment that has always worked . I talk a little about how the eye and a camera works. I usually put a diagram on the board of the light passing through the lense and focusing upside down on the back of the eye or the camera film (light sensitive plate on digital camera). I then pass out magnifying glasses and a sheet of paper. We focus the overhead classroom lights on the paper. The students enjoy this but the best is yet to come. We turn out the classroom light and move to the windows. This time when we focus the light we can see that the images are upside down.
