What are the chances realistically of you ever achieving scientific fame whilst at school? Well now that is about to change. At St. Christopher's we will form a SETI group to assist in the detection of extra terrestrial intelligence. In Year 9 and 11 you will be introduced to SETI and we hope you will continue your SETI extra-curricular work long after you finish the short introductory module in your Science class.
If you would like to join the St. Christopher SETI team then all you need to do is download the program onto your home computer and let the computer take the strain whilst you carry on with your everyday schedule.
