In this hour-long field trip students learn from a live educator about how NASA scientists study extremophiles on Earth to imagine the variety of life that might exist elsewhere, and make predictions about where to look for it. CCM educators then introduce a hands-on and collaborative activity in which learners work together to imagine and draw an extreme environment beyond Earth then invent a living thing that could thrive in it. Filled with polls, breakout sessions, and opportunities to chat and share, your students will love this fun and sciency experience!
