Join schools from around the world from September 28 - November 19, 2010 as they determine how their geographic location (i.e. where they live) affects their average daily temperature and hours of sunlight. Specifically, students will:
  • Measure the temperature and record the number of minutes of sunlight per day over a common week.
  • Compare and contrast the results with classes from all over the world.
  • Determine how proximity to the equator affects average daily temperature and hours of sunlight.
