Current astronomical missions are on the hunt for other worlds to characterize their systems and search for building blocks of life. Educators will learn about NEID, the instrument behind NASA-NSF’s Exoplanet Observation Research, and analyze exoplanet atmospheres through a classroom-ready activity developed by NSF’s NOIRLab’s Teen Astronomy Café–To Go! program.
