DISTANCE - on the BBC....

I've described the DISTANCE project that I'm working on recently.
Read more about it here.

“Schools will be doing rafts of experiments demonstrating how the world works from an educational point of view. If you get light levels from across the country, you can see how the sun rises at different times in different places. It’s partly about making live data available to teachers and students, so they can see something happening now in different locations. 
“This is bringing education right up to date in terms of the way in which the world does now change very rapidly.”

One of the partners in the project is the Birmingham Climate Laboratory: an urban climate unit...

Catherine from the unit featured on the Paul Hudson show earlier in the week...
You can listen to it again on BBC iPLAYER - may be useful for those teaching about Urban Climates.

Also good to know that such a show exists....

Currently writing materials for the project on my 'day off' from King's....
