This engaging session will be a thrilling experience for the young curious minds as it will unwind scientific facts behind the search for extraterrestrial life in the universe by astronomers and astrobiologists. The session will act as a myth buster and will showcase how tiny microbial life with its origin beyond Earth is infact known as the extraterrestrial life. Participants will come across the possibility of searching alien life within our solar system and beyond by the help of some space...
The highly interactive session consist of presentations, quizzes, and demonstrations that raises a healthy competition, team building and time management skills among kids. Each session has unique hands on activities that students take part in using easily available materials.
It's a pure science based class that I have curated after 7 years of my experience in space science research. I am a professional astronomy educator, an astrophotographer and an astronomer. Search for extra terrestrial life is a vast yet a curious topic among kids of all age groups. Since we have so many myths and misconceptions related to this particular field, a science communicator in me wanted to burst that myths and let learners know the actual meaning of alien life. It is not something we watch in fiction movies or cartoons. The search for extra terrestrial life started with the launch of Voyager Missions 40 years ago! Hence I created this session which in no ways promotes disbeliefs or rumors about aliens.
