Experiment of Eratosthenes
Year 11 Science

Yes, it’s finally Spring! 

We wish all of you to be amazingly inspired by the beauty of this season!

The first day of spring is also the equinox, and on this occasion, students around the world are asked to join the international educational project recreating the ancient experiment of Eratosthenes, who by measuring the shadow of a stick calculated the circumference of the Earth.

We were lucky enough to see some spring sunshine today, and so our Year 11 physics students with Dr Aksamit were able to join the project and recreate this experiment  on our school patio!
