Students gathered information about the JWST and its search for exoplanets with life.  They created different systems and different planets and what they thought the life would look like.

Student testimonials

This project helped me understand more about the vast universe out there which seems to be endless.

I learned that the JWST will be able to see things 100X closer than Hubble. The JWST was a cool thing to learn about. I can’t wait to see the pictures it produces.

Educator testimonial

Thanks! The kids really learned a lot! Because the James Webb will search for other planets that might harbor life, some of the students created projects that shows what that alien life on other worlds might look like: they named their planets, soil conditions, habitats, and then put models inside the planets. Thanks for this opportunity for my students!
