The science of astrobiology is concerned with the question of whether or not life exists on other planets. This educator's guide presents eight activities in which younger students investigate this question and explore topics related to the search for life beyond their own planet by using some of the same strategies that astrobiologists use. They will express their opinions on the existence of alien ... Full description.

The Gulf of Maine Aquarium hosts this two-part activity. The focus is on seasonal changes in the mass balance of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Part 1 uses an atlas and satellite imagery to examine the geography of the region and the changing boundaries of the ice sheet. Part 2 tracks annual changes in sea ice. There is an animation page showing changes in ice cover around Antarctica during 1991, and links ... Full description.

The purpose of this project is to present the holistic study of the biosphere using remote sensing technology. The intention is to have students perceive the biosphere as containing interlinked environments and organisms, an ability which would later aid students when they are introduced to concepts like trophic levels and energy flow within an ecosystem and in the biosphere. It is also expected that ... Full description.
