Novel Methods of Antibiotic Discovery in Space is a college student-led research project sending an experiment to the International Space Station to see how bacteria mutate in space! See how YOU can get involved below!
Join the NoMADS Tribe!
Team Cooke wants to visit your school or childcare site in person or virtually to share information about our mission! Presentations include age-tailored, interactive activities to enhance understanding of core concepts, and align with Common Core Standards & Next Generation Science Standards.
If you are interested in having Team Cooke visit your classroom, school, childcare facility, or organization in the 2021-2022 school year, please email us at NoMADS.TeamCooke@unh.edu!
Every school, childcare facility, STEM center, museum, library, parent/guardian etc. in New Hampshire is eligible for completely free programs with Team Cooke. Our mission is to reach as many K-12 students in the New Hampshire area as possible!

NoMADS Tribes School & Childcare Facility Visits
Option 1 - One visit
Team Cooke will visit your school or facility once and host an interactive presentation with groups of any size about bacteria, antibiotics, the International Space Station, and our experiment! You then have the option of running the engineering challenge with your students after we leave.
Option 2 - two (or more) visits
Team Cooke will visit your school or facility twice. At the first visit, students will learn about bacteria, antibiotics, space, and our experiment. In between visits, your students will work on their engineering challenge. When Team Cooke returns to your school, students will present their engineering challenge solutions to the team, and we will award accolades to the best! Virtual second visits are also available.
