Exploring Exoplanets in the Classroom

Are there habitable alien worlds? What makes a world habitable, in our solar system or beyond? How far away are the closest potentially habitable exoplanets? In this interactive, TEKS-aligned workshop, we will explore conceptions of scale and why it matters for exoplanets, planet hunting, known exoplanets, and what science tells us about alien worlds with similarities to our own. _x000D_
This cosmic journey will use engaging online multimedia NASA resources, easy activities with common materials, the presenter’s own free curricula with classroom-ready scale models, and more. Participants will relate exoplanets to the TEKS, and discuss why “eyeball Earths” orbiting small dim stars maybe the most common “Earth-like” planets of all.
