CPD Biology

Astrobiology

April 18th & 19th 2017

National Space Centre, Leicester

Astrobiology asks questions such as:

  • How did life originate?
  • How did the Earth become a habitable planet?
  • Is there life elsewhere?
  • What is the future of life on Earth?
  • How do we explore and settle other planets?

They are some of the most fascinating questions in science. Within them are many areas of science from biology to physics and chemistry that can used to teach fundamental ideas and concepts in science in schools.  

During the CPD you will see how these exciting questions can be used to teach basic curriculum science. You'll receive a set of lesson plans ready for use in schools and our Astrobiology in a Box resource which you can use to teach some basic concepts in physics and biology using astrobiology. In addition you'll hear about cutting edge science from Professor Charles Cockell including the search for exoplanets and life elsewhere.
