1. New High School Astrobiology Course in Washington

    Born from the zeal of high school teacher Dani Leach in Lakewood, Washington, a new course devoted entirely to astrobiology is underway for students at Lakewood High School. Part of their curriculum included a recent visit to the NAI’s team at the University of Washington where they experienced many aspects of astrobiology research, from hydrothermal vent research to predicting habitability on extrasolar planets. The students can also earn credit for the course through their local community college.
