Life exists in some surprising places! Motivated by the increasing number of known Earth-sized planets, scientists are turning their attention to those distant worlds to look for life. In this lab, students will learn about the missions to search for life in the solar system and beyond and discuss some of the extreme environments where life is found on Earth. Activities include exploring the characteristics of life, demonstrations of experiments based on actual Mars missions, and modeling the habitable zone where liquid water can exist.

Virtual classroom programs are designed for up to 40 student participants on zoom. Virtual programs are 45-minutes of demos and lessons and allow for a 15-minute Q&A.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
