The Woodland Education Centre
Air Temperature Experiment

wpe5.jpg (27877 bytes)
A sensor was located at the Woodland Education Centre which is near Honiton in South-west England.  When running, the sensor recorded the air temperature at regular intervals. This was displayed in the lefthand panel above.  The date and time of the reading was also shown.  The picture on the right is not a live picture!

As a pilot project for our remote experiments, the data was automatically uploaded every minute for 12 hours over a three day period.  Students made regular visits to this web page and recorded the displayed temperatures.   As part of the experiment, they compared these readings with those taken at their own location.
