To inspire and train the next generation of astrobiologists, the Center supports a wide range of education and public outreach activities.
The Center hosts a seminar series on the origins of life featuring presentations by researchers around the world. Visiting speakers are interviewed by WAMC Northeast Public Radio for subsequent broadcast on “The Best of our Knowledge” and other NPR shows. Click here for seminars.

The Center partners with the Greater Capital Region Teacher Center, and with an area high school, to enthuse and educate students and their teachers in this exciting field of study.
The Center also runs an annual Astrobiology Summer Camp for precollege students grades 6-8 as part of the ExxonMobil/NASA Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp at Rensselaer. As part of the program, young students are given the opportunity to perform research directly in the lab for what is very likely the first time in their lives.
