Additionally, your donations will expand the opportunities for you to participate in SETI Institute’s search for life in the universe. Outer space unlocks imaginations and gives us the opportunity to engage people with science in a fresh and exciting way. We know that inspiring the next generation to be scientifically literate is vital. The Curiosity Movement will allow us to broaden educational opportunities for students, teachers and the public through interactive workshops, innovative curricula, teacher-scientist partnerships and much more.

Come join our journey and share the excitement of pushing the boundaries of science to the ultimate discovery!
