Bring practical applications to your lesson on spectroscopy, light, or ultraviolet radiation with a lab that mimics aspects of the photographic process. Students will make their own sheets of photosensitive (also called blueprint) paper in the laboratory by dipping porous paper in two different iron salt solutions. Students will then develop images of their choice by exposing the treated paper to ultraviolet light from the sun.
Background information, detailed procedure, and all necessary photographic chemicals to make 100 “photographs” or images are included in the kit.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Opaque or translucent “nonmetallic” objects are needed to make the images.
