What are ways scientists search for distant planets? What is gravitational lensing? Through a webinar with Dr. Ian Dell-Antonio, Professor of Physics at Brown University, discover ways to search for exoplanets. Finish the session with a series of fun and engaging hands-on activities that explore filtered light, exoplanet transits, and objects in motion. Teachers then become NASA Engineers to build a model space telescope to explore the cosmos!
