Binghamton, NY - Binghamton University
Space Exploration Institute: Life Beyond the Earth
For current 6-8 grade students

Description:
Space Exploration Institute: Life Beyond the Earth
Students attending this institute will explore the search for life beyond the earth, starting first with profound questions about what the foundations of life are. Is a model based on earthly life sufficient? What is the boundary between the living and the non-living? As the students look for life beyond Earth, they will go farther than Mars, to places such as Enceladus, a moon of Saturn. Finally, they will look to the stars, and consider planets orbiting distant stars. Topics of study will include the results of NASAís Kepler mission, which is capable of finding Earth-like planets orbiting other stars. Students also will use KOSCís telescopes and cameras to develop skills in visual observation and astrophotography!
One session: July 20 - July 26, 2014
