The Eratosthenes project by the UNAWE Andean Countries will join the celebration of the International Year of the Light 2015 by taking part in the Eratosthenes Global IYL2015 project. The project will coordinate measurements taken on 21 June 2015 throughout the Andean region.
Below is a message from the organisers:
We invite you to participate with your students in measuring the size of the earth and sharing this informative and exciting experience with young people from other countries such as have thousands of young people in previous years. Also, please help us inform other interested teachers.
