CAUSE is happy to announce the launch of a collection of SPARKS - very short (only 10-20
seconds) video clips that could be used in teaching statistics, by depicting an
interesting real-world context and either explicitly posing a question or implicitly
positioning a teacher/student to pose many questions to investigate. Really short poems,
jokes, or jingles are also welcome! You can view the current collection at
To give you an incentive to participate in building this collection, submissions before
USCOTS 2021 will earn you complimentary registration! If you have already registered for
USCOTS, you will receive a complimentary registration for ECOTS 2022.
The submission page is at
Selected videos from the collection will be shown at USCOTS (which starts on June 28).
