I'm selling analemmatic sundials to schools as an interactive learning project.

There are a few ways of finding north. Currently I use the sun. I developed a program that will make a 'high noon' calendar for each day of the year (within a few seconds) that works only with the longitude of the sundial.
(Long story but if your curious and want a better explanation  sundialsforlearning dot com/faq/how-do-i-find-north/   )

 sometimes this is inconvenient because of cloud cover.

I'm working on other suggestions for schools to find north (without spending much)

It's for children. Kids love them. Do you think a surveyor would do this voluntary or at a greatly reduced rate?

BTW
I love feedback either positive or negative about my website. I'd like a surveyors perspective
