How do we know our local noon, North-South (and other directions), latitude, and longitude at any location on earth? Are there ways in which we (teachers and our students) can find these out for ourselves? Is this possible during school hours? Do we need specialised equipment or experts to help us? What role do shadows play in this inquiry?
Join us as we explore these and many more questions in an interactive discussion with Alok Mandavgane, Varuni P, and Amol Anandrao Kate.
If you have any questions or ideas that you would like us to discuss regarding the topic during the webinar, kindly write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
