Product Description
This is a long (2-3 hour) activity for advanced high school students or college students at the introductory level. The possibility of communicating with extraterrestrials is used as a "hook" to get students to use some algebra and estimation (Drake equation), to stretch their imaginations to look at our civilization from the outside (as they try to interpret the Voyager plaque and Arecibo message), and to actually search real-time radio signals to separate man-made artifacts from extraterrestrial signals, using the crowd-sourced "Zooniverse" project.
