What Is Astrobiology?
The focus of astrobiology is the exploration of new worlds – the perfect preparation for a future driven by multi-faceted change.

It presents a holistic view of the world, bringing together the sciences of cosmology, astronomy, physics, biology, geology and paleontology

Humanity is entering a completely new world – a world of genetic engineering, sophisticated AI, emerging technologies, dramatic ecological changes, and the rising symbiosis between sciences and humanities. Social and technological complexity is increasing rapidly in front of our eyes.

This world, in which we have little experience and intuition, presents unique challenges for children and adults alike. As humanity becomes increasingly more technologically sophisticated and powerful, it needs more wisdom to avoid harming itself, life on Earth, and the whole planet.

What should we teach our children to make sure that they make good use of this newly acquired power? Fundamentally, we should start with developing qualities such as open-mindedness and fearless inquiry, critical thinking and big-picture perspective.

Few areas of science offer a better opportunity to learn such skills than astrobiology, an emergent science concerned with new worlds and the future of humanity.

Julia Brodsky
Lead instructor and founder Julia Brodsky is a researcher at the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science. She holds an A.Sc. in science education, and an M.Sc in astrophysics from St.Petersburg Polytechnic University in Russia. ​Over the years, she has taught International Space Station astronauts and flight controllers, worked as a rocket scientist at NASA, helped out at NASA outreach centers, and worked as a math and science teacher at private schools and colleges. Julia is a recipient of the Silver Snoopy Award, presented by astronauts for outstanding performance, contributing to flight safety and mission success. ​Julia homeschooled her own children for several years, founded a math circle for K-5 kids, wrote a book on informal math education, and presented at Mathematical Sciences Research Institute at UC Berkeley, and international astrobiology and space research conferences. She loves writing books and blogs on science and math, and sharing her courses and webinars with anybody who wants to listen : )


At Python Club, a non-profit, we want to give people across the world, young and old, the opportunity to learn how to program. We provide a wide range of levels of courses in different programming languages and also private tutoring sessions.

Our courses are designed to progress the understanding and programming skills of students to move on to more and more advanced courses.

We want provide resources to all across the world to learn how to program because we want the access to education to be not only more equitable by providing basic understanding, but also further advance the knowledge of our students to become leaders in the technological world.

We want to bring together people who share common interests in coding and computer programming, while encouraging that inclusion of all without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, amnesty or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.

Oxana Litvine

Founder and Head Coordinator of the Python Club I graduated in 1993 with a degree in Human and Animal Physiology from the Biology Department of Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia. I then went to graduate school at the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences (P.K. Anokhin Institute of Normal Physiology) where I studied neuroscience and wrote a thesis devoted to mechanisms of memory reconsolidation, leading me to graduate with a PhD in biology in 1999. I went on to work as a research scientist in 1999-2007 in Russia, in Switzerland, and in the USA, mainly in the field of behavioral neuroscience. In 2008 I changed my career path and became a teacher in a private high school in New York, where I taught Biology, Chemistry, and sometimes Physics. As of today, I am an experienced science teacher, certified to teach Biology and Chemistry in two international programs – IB and IGCSE, and I currently teach AP Biology, Anatomy & Physiology and Biology for freshmen in a private catholic school in NYS. I am also an AP Biology reader, and I used to be IB examiner for Environmental Systems and Societies
