using Information Literacy
Created for students in 6th grade and up,

Using authentic correspondence "specialists" take part in a problem-based
quest to seek life in not only our Solar System but beyond into Deep Space.
An indepth study of our Solar System will be conducted to seek answers
to the questions posed in this project. Knowing what causes life
to succeed in different environments will be one of the first challenges.
Seeking forms of life and environments in our own world and Solar System
will give background to further revelations of whether man or robot will
find life among the stars. Presentations to the World Life Studies
Federation will be the culminating activity.
