Saturday Morning Science: Sundials

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent


Sundials are timekeeping devices that tell the time by the position of the Sun. Sundials consist of the surface marked with lines indicating the hours of the day, and a gnomon, which is a thin rod or a sharp, straight edge and is the part that casts a shadow onto the surface. The edge of the shadow cast by the gnomon lines up with hour-lines on the surface as the sun moves across the sky.

We will be building and learning to read a sundial.
