The Museum organized this activity for students to make them aware of the evolution of projection through time. The students took part in the activity with great enthusiasm and made a projector and slides, which they projected onto the screen.
However, for our activity, we provided necessary equipment such as thermocol, magnifying glass, glass slides, glue, etc. The students were divided into four groups and were told to make projectors and slides. We first showed them how it’s made. They were excited about making and were pleased with the result. We showed them a prepared presentation, explaining the process of making and different types of projectors.
By the end of the activity, each student was given a certificate. And the projectors done by them were taken to their school.
