Live Eratosthenes Experiment at Athens Science Festival

Thursday, 19 March, 2015 to Friday, 20 March, 2015

EA will participate in the Athens Science Festival on the 19th and 20th of March where guests will have the opportunity to conduct the Eratosthenes Experiment by themselves.

One-meter sticks and meters will be distributed to the guests.  Once they have completed their measurement, they will pass the length of the shadow of the stick to the EA team and when all teams have gathered their date, they will connect via Skype with another school to exchange data. Right at this point EA team will have whatever needed to measure the circumference of the Earth. Will they make it?
