I am interested in participating in a collaborative project with my junior Geometry class. The project was developed by CIESE(The Center for Improved Engineering and Science Education) in Hoboken, New Jersey. The name of the project is "The Noon Day Project". It requires that your students measure shadows, gather data and calculate the circuference of the earth. The data is collected on the project' website and compared with other schools throughout the world. You must register to participate and you need a partner school at a different latitude.
If you are interested in being a partner with my class at Hoboken High School, please email me at Taddeo315@yahoo.com. The project's website is http://k12science.stevens-tech.edu/noonday. The registration site will be up shortly after Feb. 15.
