Investigating thermography

Students research the theoretical principles of thermography and create a thermogram.  They will need to:

  • find out about hot body radiation and the medical uses of thermography
  • Create a thermogram. Temperatures are mapped across an object using an infrared thermometer, then converted into colours to create a thermogram
