Welcome to the Sunshine Report!

It’s Wednesday December 27, 2017. This is the first post.

Why am I here? Quite simply, because we are curious and full of wonder. Mr. Watkins’s science classes have been collecting sunshine and weather data since Monday, 12/4. The first day was messy, really messy. But learning is messy. We’ve collected sunshine and weather data every Wednesday since and today’s data is being collected while we are on break from school.

I’ve collected the data for all 37 locations ranging from Tromso, Norway to Stanley, Falkland Islands or from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Wellington, New Zealand. It depends on how you look at it.

Today’s trivia:

    • coldest – -19° C
    • hottest – 31° C
    • most sunshine – 16 hours and 38 minutes
    • least sunshine – 0 hours and 0 minutes

Where could these places be?

Stay tuned….. We’ll continue to gather data every Wednesday until the end of the year. We’ll be searching for patterns and trying to discover the how and why of weather.

Be curious and wonder.
