Eagle Project Idea: Installing a Sundial

Before there were digital watches, there were sundials.

Apparently, the earliest sundials date all the way back to 3,500 B.C., but for Michigan Boy Scout Geno Chandler, installing a sundial made for the perfect modern-day Eagle project.

Geno installed his sundial in the courtyard of a local middle school. To help raise money, he sold personalized bricks, which were used in the sundial’s construction.

For bonus points, can you tell what time it was when the below photo was taken?

Our guess is 7 p.m. but we’re not sure if that accounts for daylight saving time or not.
