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 The project's website
is The registration site
will be up shortly after Feb. 15.

Thank you, Nicole Taddeo
