PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Star clocks are double-wheeled devices that can be used to estimate the time on any night of the year (weather permitting!). They make a nice simple STEM project and students learn that the stars move during the night and also over the course of a year. Ancient cultures were actually able to tell time by the slow movement of the stars during the night.

During the night, the stars move around Polaris, the North Star. The pinwheel nature of the template mimics this motion and combined with the moveable month wheel can be used to estimate the time on any night that the stars are out. Both templates are provided as are instructions to assemble it.
