Summary: Coral reefs are really colorful and really important to Earth. Scientists know where reefs are, but they still don’t know how many different types of coral are out there. NASA is trying to excite people by making a fun video game. Ved Chirayath and his team now have a camera, the FluidCam. It can be attached to very small drones to take close-up pictures of coral systems and make 3-D images! If you play NeMo-Net, you start by learning how to map limits and textures of lots if coral, organize it, and move around the reef. To level up, you have to do a good job with the level they are on. You will soon be able to play NeMo-Net on your I-pad or phone.

Personal Response: I chose this article because I thought it was really cool that scientists are able to play video games while they are researching because I love technology. What do you think of my article?
