GWC D I S C O STEAM InVenTures
Discover, Investigate, Simulate and Create Opportunities for Tracking Sunsets
 
Participants throughout Maryland will observe and document, using digital photography (phone or stand-alone cameras), along with online data to track sunset points along an horizon and answer such questions as:
  1. What patterns are there in Maryland sunsets as the sun journeys to the Tropic of Capricorn?
  2. In what ways do various phenomena in the local environment change during the journey?
  3. In what ways are the appearances of sunsets alike and different?
  4. How does tracking sunsets integrate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) practices?
