The “Look Up-Cloud Hunters 2023” Competition will give students and teachers a chance to experience what the mobile application „GLOBE Observer“ can do, by observing clouds and atmosphere conditions, and taking photos of interesting clouds with a mobile phone camera as an art activity by an STE(A)M-based approach and become the “Cloud Hunters 2023”. Students will have the opportunity to explore technology and discover that technology can have a purpose and that they can contribute as citizen scientists for a better understanding of the planet Earth as a system.
Furthermore, by taking the photos with a mobile camera, children will direct their attention to nature (clouds in the sky) and record their observations with an artistic touch. Any type of cloud or interesting meteorological phenomenon is welcomed!
The main goals are that students, together with their teachers and peers, pay attention and explore the world around them, and to raise awareness about everyday science possibilities, significantly toward the nature, weather, atmosphere conditions, and clouds observing activities.
Join the 2023 STEM Discovery Campaign, a joint international initiative organised by Scientix that invites educators, projects, organisations, libraries, schools, universities, youth clubs and all the interested stakeholders across Europe and the world to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
The theme for the 2023 STEM Discovery Campaign is STEM Identities. STEM identity plays an important role in an individual’s success in educational environments, their career goals and orientation. Developing a STEM identity increases the likelihood that learners will develop science literacy – some might even follow a STEM career path.
We invite everyone to get involved in the 2023 STEM Discovery Campaign by organizing, conducting and taking part in various STEM activities and featuring them on the STEM Discovery Campaign map, becoming partners and participating in our competitions as well as other online events!
Add your STEM activity on the Map!
Are you participating in a STEM activity between February and April 2023? Include it on the map! Sign in to your (free) Scientix account and put your activity on a world map.
You want to participate?
Will you be organising, conducting and/or taking part in STEM activities during these three months? Are you interested in showcasing any projects? Are you a teacher or an organisation working in STEM? All STEM-related actions can be included on the STEM Discovery Campaign map and help spark learners’ interest in STEM and shape their STEM identities!
Are you interested in becoming a partner?
Public and privately funded projects, non-governmental and governmental organizations, universities, libraries, youth clubs, companies and schools active in STEM education are welcome to join the 2023 STEM Discovery Campaign as partners. By committing to the SDC23, the partners agree to:
- Organise and share information about (online) activities and actions in STEM education as part of the STEM Discovery Campaign.
- Encourage third parties to support and join the initiative by organising STEM activities (online) or actions of their own and share information about them as part of the STEM Discovery Campaign, in particular by marking these activities on the campaign map.
- Publish on their web page information in support of the STEM Discovery Campaign, hence facilitating an active exchange of information among projects, organisations and schools.
For more information on the registration steps that potential partners need to follow, please download the guide for partners document and fill in the form. For general information and promotional materials, visit the official page of the 2023 STEM Discovery Campaign on the Scientix portal.
