Investigating Exoplanets!

This talk will describe NASA’s citizen science campaign to study exoplanets for the purpose of helping schedule James Webb Space Telescope observations more efficiently. You can become involved in this effort even if you do not have your own telescope!

Now in its 17th year, the Los Altos High School STEAM Week program recruits top leaders from local business, industry, and academia to share their experiences with the students at Los Altos High School.  The program's two or three-day agenda features speakers from a wide range of careers, including astronomy, aeronautics, computer science, bioengineering, health care, art, ecology and artificial intelligence.  Speakers volunteer their time to talk about how math, science, or the arts helped them realize their dreams, inspiring the more than 2,000 local students to continue to chase dreams of their own.
