Event information

NASA Spotlite Challenge: Cloud Detectives
Developed in Collaboration with NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative

NASA eClips and NESEC invite student teams to produce a short video (90 seconds to 2 minutes) confronting one of two misconceptions related to clouds by investigating and collecting evidence, including GLOBE Clouds and NASA data.

In this challenge, student teams:

  • Confront a science misconception by gathering evidence through observations and explorations
  • Capture questions and findings through video
  • Produce a video to challenge others to make their own observations
