Gearing up for Another Year of Student-Produced Spotlite Videos!

The NASA eClips team is seeking middle and high school digital media/technology teachers, science teachers, and STEM teachers/coaches to include their students in producing Spotlite videos for NASA. The purpose of these short videos is to correct a science misconception. Students assume the role of producers as they research, create a storyboard, write a script, and film and edit a video to correctly teach a science concept to younger students.

Organized as a design challenge, this project provides students an authentic, real-world project-based learning experience. Many disciplines are integrated in this design challenge including language arts, communication skills, science, the arts and technology integration.

An informational webinar will be held Tuesday, October 3 at 3:30. Please use this link to sign up. https://goo.gl/forms/polsuqfYCtjKCTJv2

Here are links to examples of Spotlite videos that students produced this year - https://youtu.be/1e4bnUohXUs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0NYLvKamrM. Once the videos are approved by NASA they are added to the NASA eClips website https://nasaeclips.arc.nasa.gov under the “NASA Spotlite” tab (students are listed in the credits!).

Please share this opportunity with teachers in your network.
