R&D Day 7 Jan 17th 2012 – Projections

Clouds and ProjectionsToday we jury-rigged the small digital camera to the old digital projector in advance of finally managing to get the small hand-held projector connected to the camera. While the children were playing with the overhead projector and the big white screens, we filmed and projected their activities onto the wall and the screens.

Later, we worked with the cloud child puppet and the house, looking at projections, and the introduction of primary colours: blues, red, orange and green

We played around with the puppet drawing on the house, either with real pens or crayons, or using projections to give the illusions of  Cloud Child drawing on the walls of the house.

Here is a short video of something we tried out.
