Invitation to project!
Week 1 - Project Kickoff
Weeks 2-3: Time for measuring
Goal of the Noon Day Project is to have students measure
circumference of the earth using a method that was first used by
Eratosthenes over 2000 years ago. Students at various sites
around the world will measure shadows
cast by a meter stick and compare
their results. From this data students will be able to calculate the
circumference of the earth.
