Eratosthenes experiment on 21 March 2017

Tuesday, 21 March, 2017

Following last March’s  great success with more than 1100  schools from around the world involved in the activity,  we are happy to announce the Eratosthenes Experiment March 2017, which will take place on 21 March, 2017 (a day after the spring equinox day)! Do not miss this opportunity to participate in this fascinating international event! Take part through your school by registering at the website with your school’s longitude and latitude. Once you are registered, you will be put in touch with a school from the same longitude with you by the organizing team. Together with your partner school, you will record data, collaborate, calculate the circumference of the Earth and submit the data.

In order to enter a competition to win a scholarship to attend the 2017 European Science Education Academy (ESEA) Summer School in Greece, take a photo of your experiment and submit it before 14 April along with your data. More info at: http://eratosthenes.ea.gr/content/photo-contest-march-2017

Please note that the Eratosthenes Experiment official website has been upgraded. From now on, you can create your account and make use of it in order to register your school, submit & store your experiment data to compare them with future data, and upload to the gallery of Eratosthenes website photos from the experiment taking part at your school (or another location).
