Are we alone? Does life exist on exoplanets beyond our solar system? Join us April 10th, 11th or 12th for a one-hour workshop and find out whether extraterrestrial life could exist, and which exoplanets would make good homes for it. We’ll explore how scientists use extremophiles, organisms that thrive in extreme environments on Earth, to hypothesize what alien life might be like. Participants will also have the chance to draw what they think an alien might look like.

This program is recommended for families with children ages 8+. Children must be accompanied by adults. One ticket must be purchased for each member of your group and groups can have a maximum of 4 people. Please arrive early to allow time for check-in.
