Astrobiology, by its very nature, kindles interest and curiosity in students and offers a genuinely exciting entre to high school science. Students experience science in a relevant and meaningful way as they consider the fascinating story of searching for life in the universe. Astrobiology is a low-cost, high-impact science course designed to reach students having a wide range of abilities. The yearlong curriculum is an inquiry-based, interdisciplinary program of study. Through a series of hands-on activities, students explore diverse concepts in chemistry, physics, biology, and Earth and space science. These concepts are truly integrated and there are no artificial divisions of scientific disciplines. Supported during its development by the National Science Foundation, one link is to the publisher's website and another is to the project development site.
