Senior Project of 2003 - The Sundial



The senior class of 2003 constructed our first senior project at the Elementary School. It was the sundial. Our sundial is special because the Gnomon, the part that stands up vertically, is a person. To read the time accurately, the time reader must stand on the stone that corresponds to the current month and his shadow will be cast on the correct time. The dial plate, the circular part that has the numbers on it, is actually the ground.
