This podcast was created with middle school students in mind.  In the podcast, you will see three 7th grade students indirectly figure out the height of a lamp post.  The podcast is designed so that the viewers are given the steps necessary to find the height of the lamp post.  The viewers are also shown how to execute the steps.  The steps can be used to indirectly find the height of anything on a sunny day.
