2020 Community Cloud Challenge (15 July-15 August): Science is Better Together

2020 Community Cloud Challenge shareable

This summer (or winter, if you 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.

This year, differing from past challenges (where the number of observations equaled top observer status), there are a variety of ways for people 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 cooking up a “cloud in a jar”) or even create a science journal to record daily observations. Participants will be able to choose at least one option to participate or they can choose to do them all!

Remember to always follow guidelines from your local officials, and only participate in GLOBE activities or use the GLOBE Observer app if it is safe to do so.

Follow GLOBE on social media @TheGLOBEProgram (Facebook), @GLOBEProgram (Twitter),  and @globeprogram (Instagram) to learn more about how you can participate in the challenge. 

For additional information, visit the GLOBE Observer website.
