GLOBE Observer 2020 Community Cloud Challenge

2020 Community Cloud Challenge: Science is Better Together

Date: 07/15/2020 - 08/15/2020

This summer (or winter if you should live in the Southern Hemisphere) join GLOBE in the 2020 Community Cloud Challenge: Science is Better Together. 

The Community Cloud Challenge kicks off on 15 July 2020 and concludes on 15 August 2020. Differing from past challenges where number of observations equaled top observer status, this year there are a variety of ways for the public to participate as a community and build skills as a cloud observer.  For example, participants can watch cloud scientist videos weekly, learn how to conduct some cool indoor activities (such as creating a cloud in a jar) or they can even develop  a science journal to daily record what they see.  Participants will be able to choose at least one option to participate or they can choose to do them all!


Follow GLOBE on social media (@TheGLOBEProgram (Facebook) @GLOBEProgram (Twitter)  and @globeprogram (Instagram)  to learn more about how you can participate this summer/winter.
