Living Worlds Space Art Contest

Thanks to the generous donation of a University of Notre Dame alum, the iLocater Research team was able to launch an ambitious new outreach campaign called the Living Worlds Space Art Contest. Elementary students were challenged to consider how life forms may have developed and adapted to living on newly discovered extrasolar planets.

I led our collective effort to develop and manage this new student contest. Our first year was a tremendous success with over 1,000 student entries from ten different states. The students winners were announced in April of 2016 – you can explore their awesome artwork and creative writing first-hand by following the links in our press release.
