Product Description
New from No More Boring Science - Most students think that the sun rises due east, passes directly overhead at noon, and sets due west. This lab is intended to challenge those preconceptions. The notion that the sun is directly overhead at noon, regardless of the time of year, is an idea that is very strongly held by students of all ages and academic backgrounds. The goal is to plot and discuss the Sun’s apparent daily movement across the sky. This lab can be used to address angle of insolation and seasonal changes from the New York Regent’s Exam.
