EPO Activity: Project 13: Astrobiology Boot Camp for Middle School Students

Project Progress

Work has begun on this project which is a collaboration between WARC and Solar System Educator Laura Venner of New Jersey. The result will be a STEM education product, “The Astrobiology Boot Camp,” where middle school students can design a space mission to explore a body in the solar system to look for life. This product is based on JPL’s highly successful “Planetary Science Summer School” for post-doc students and will be created using Universal Instructional Design.
