We post here the problem used in the SCUDEM Lite 2020 Event. Originally planned for the MAA Intermountain Section Meeting on 28 March 2020, at Westminster College, Salt Lake City UT USA, this event was cancelled due to the virus spread in the United States, but teams of students posted their 10 minute video on YouTube and we plan to link these here for viewing to show the nature of what students can to on a real problem using differential equations.

We include the statement of the problem here as a file for download.

Eight teams of three undergraduate students each from Dixie State University, Idaho State University, and Washington State University-Vancouver submitted 10 minute video presentations. Twenty one judges volunteered to view, score, and make comments on the video presentations and awards were sent out to the teams. We want to post all the teams' videos to show you the remarkable work these students did while both working on a model and producing a video remotely from each other. We share with you some of the submissions (for which we have permission to post) and plan to release all once we get permissions. We list school, team ID, team members, faculty coach, and URL of the presentation video. We encourage you to watch and celebrate in the efforts of these students.
