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 either in person or virtually to share information about our mission! Presentations will include age-tailored, interactive activities to enhance understanding of core concepts, and will align with Common Core Standards & Next Generation Science Standards.
If you think you may be interested in having Team Cooke visit your classroom, school, childcare facility, or organization in the 2021-2022 school year, please fill out the survey by clicking the button to receive more information. You will be contacted by Team Cooke after filling out the form starting in early October to schedule a visit!

NoMADS Tribes School & Childcare Facility Visits
Option 1 - One visit
Team Cooke will visit your school or facility once and present to your students about bacteria, antibiotics, space, and our experiment!
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.
