Event information

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.

Here are links to examples of Spotlite videos that students produced this year - and Once the videos are approved by NASA they are added to the NASA eClips website under the “NASA Spotlite” tab (students are listed in the credits!).

Please share this opportunity with teachers in your network.
