Abstract: For over a century educators have been debating the issue of knowledge transfer, whether concepts learned in one domain can transfer to another. Research in the last few decades has found that successful transfer is remarkably rare in education, especially in science and mathematics. Astrobiology as a domain may offer an opportunity for successful knowledge transfer due to its inherent multidisciplinary nature.
