Cell Phones and 3D Imaging at the Chatham Club
While Chatham Club members are not allowed to use cell phones during Club programming times. This day was different. Chatham staff member, Ms. Amanda, invited all youth participating in the STEM program to pull out their phones! Why? To learn about holograms.
After watching a short video on animation and movie production, the Club members learned how they could utilize their cell phones and transparency paper to make 3D shapes like unicorns, horses and even skeletons. They also learned about Pepper's Ghost, an illusion trick used theater, museums, television and concerts. This technique is used to 'trick the mind' into seeing something that really isn't there.
At the conclusion of the program, Club members produced their own Pepper's Ghost!
