Are we unique and alone in the Universe? Explore the diversity of planets around other stars, learn about on-going and future projects aimed at discovering Earth twins, and experience how to turn your students into planet hunters! Believe it or not, humans are NOT at the center of the Universe. From the history of our shift from geocentric to a heliocentric view to building a scale model of our solar system and the Trappist 1 solar system to the variety of ways we detect exoplanets and finally, exploring the habitable (Goldilocks) zone to find Earth twins, this workshop will leave you excited to engage your students with this cutting edge science!
