Help needed with my project (measuring time)

Postby A0987 » Sat Sep 18, 2021 5:35 pm

I am student who needs to do her science project. I really like one of ideas called "A MatterOf Time" but I have a question. I read the summary and it says I need to measure time every month for 1 whole year. My project is due in February, I can't measure a whole year. What should I do? Should I just measure it up to February or not? I'm starting in September. Thanks for your help!

This sounds like a fun project! For this project you can use solar and sidereal time calculators available online. You can change the date on these calculators to future months and they will give you the appropriate times. You don't need to wait to measure every month, you can record all the results in an hour or two of work.

Hope this helps!
