WELCOME

Welcome to the Eratosthenes Experiment platform!

 

  • REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!
  • If you've participated in the Eratosthenes Experiment, please
    Submit your Data. If not, don't worry, there will be more Events in the future.
    Leave your email and be informed.
  • Please join us again on 21st  of March 2017 for the next Eratosthenes Experiment event. Registration will open on 10th of January 2017.


 

This year the experiment will take place on the 22rd of September, on the autumnal equinox day. 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 Monday 12th  of September 12:00 CET will receive on Thursday 15th  of September 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 Friday16th and Monday 19th of September (after 16 CET). 

Schools that register on Friday 16th  of September after 15 CET will receive  email as well on Monday 19th of September.

If  you would like to perform the experiment by yourself ion a date other than the 22nd of September, 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.
