Summer of Discovery
Summer of Discovery: The Search for Life
For as long as there have been humans, we have wondered "Are we alone in the universe?"
This summer - join the Discovery Center as we spend the summer exploring all the past and present information we have on this topic, as well as journey into the future of space missions being developed to Search for Life in places yet to be searched.
Every Saturday, June 4th - August 6th, the Discovery Center will expand on our larger theme of The Search for Life by taking a deeper dive into a specific part of our search for life.
- June 4th: Robotics - Helpers in the Search for Life
- June 11th: Too Small to See
- June 18th: Live from the Arctic - Searching for Life in Alien Oceans
- June 25th: Life in the Rocks? It's a Great Place to Start
