Following last March’s great success with more than 1000 schools from around the world involved in the activity, we are happy to announce the Eratosthenes Experiment September 2016, which will take place on the 22nd of September, 2016! Do not miss the opportunity to participate in this fascinating international event! Register your school here.
Stay tuned by joining the Eratosthenes Community, where you can also find lesson plans of the experiment based on the Inquiry Based Model. There, you’ll find your country’s community (Network of related communities - on the right) and the lesson plans for primary school and high school in your languages! If you do not have access to computers or tablets your students’ knowledge on the subject will be assessed by the means of an online questionnaire which can be found here.
Students get to reproduce the measurement of the circumference of the Earth, one of the most important scientific measurements ever performed, using the simplest apparatus! More details on how to do the experiment are on the website: http://eratosthenes.
