Where?  At the Austin Nature and Science Center!  We are very excited to see the Sunclock finished.  We were practicing for the layout June 19th and its been almost two hot sweaty months of laser cutting molds for the calendar stones, of assisting Nature Center Exhibits Director Josh Ransom with cement pours and false starts getting the dates just right.  This project has been a true collaboration!  Gary in facilities management, Travis from the city Aquatics department were there doing some heavy lifting and offering expertise on stonework as well as Mathhappens team and Margaret Russell, ANSC Education Manager.  There will be an opening on August 21st at the Austin Nature and Science Center.

  1. The sundial was amazing and really interesting for my 4yr. old and me to experience (and during the eclipse nonetheless!) Thank you so much for installing it at the ANSC. We’ll visit often!

  2. Hi. I visited this sundial a couple years back and loved the idea! I was wondering if anyone has a picture of the description sign that goes along with it? I thought it did a great job of explaining the sundial and how it works with daylight savings. Thanks
