We've announced the Photo Contest Winner - September 2016

Check out if it's you!

.

This year the experiment will take place on the 21st of March, one day after  the spring equinox day (Monday, 20 March 2017, 10:29 UTC). Thus, for your matchup –if no other schools can be found on the same longitude- you can consider the existence of a virtual school on the equator with experimental data 0 (shade of a one-meter stick measured at a certain time). This way you can also have an accurate outcome by conducting the experiment by yourself. Schools that register till Wednesday 15th of March 12:00 CET will receive on Thursday 16th of March an e-mail with the coordinates of potential matching schools along with the information (email) of their contact persons, so that they can communicate and arrange their match-up during the day of the experiment. Schools that register after the referred date and time above, will receive the same email on Friday 17th (after 16:00 CET) and Monday 20th of March (after 12:00 CET). Schools that register on Friday 17th of March after 16:00 CET will receive email as well on Monday 20th of March.

If you would like to perform the experiment by yourself on a date other than the 21st  of March, you can use this simulator  to find the exact angle from your school to the place where the sun rays are perpendicular to the ground.
