Digital media students from Arlington Career and Technical Center participated in a culminating event at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) to recognize their efforts in production of NASA Spotlite videos, as part of the NASA eClips 4D program. Sharon Bowers (NIA) collaborated with, Tom O'Day (Arlington Tech digital media teacher) and Pam Nagurka (Arlington Public School STEM Specialist) to support the Arlington Tech student teams as they developed the Spotlite videos to address and dispel science misconceptions. The student teams traveled to NASA GSFC June 13, 2017 to present their work to the NASA GSFC SVS producers for authentic assessment and review. The students also participated in the hour-long Big Screen StoryLab and joined the SVS producers for lunch to discuss science communication as a STEM career opportunity. Their trip to NASA GSFC was documented in this short video,
