The Goal of the Noon Day Project <http://ciese.org/curriculum/noonday/> is
to have students measure the 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. Click here to get to their site and
Watch the Carl Sagan video, <http://youtu.be/0JHEqBLG650> its a treat.
