The sun is the focus for this workshop, which combines the mathematics of sundials, sun trackers and other solar instruments. Participants make an equatorial sundial for their specific latitude and longitude; the simplest and easiest to understand. Participants learn how to generate and analyse data cast by shadows following the steady rotation of the earth. Some
extensions relating to equinoxes, solstices, eclipses and sunspots. Some important historical sundials are illustrated and discussed. This is a hands on workshop.
