This two-day training features our new Explore module about NASA’s investigations in the scientific field of astrobiology, where scientists are searching for indications that Mars may be able to — or has been able to — support life. Discover the current scientific understanding of Mars and what it takes for life to exist beyond our home planet.
Scientists and educators from NASA and the Lunar and Planetary Institute will share space science information, resources, hands-on activities, and demonstrations developed specifically for you to infuse into your programs with children ages 8 to 13 and their families.
The training is free. A $150 stipend is available for 30 participants and will be offered on a first-come-first-accepted basis.
