Rocket Science



On Monday 18th April we launched an exciting scientific experiment, with the help of Years 2 and 5.

The British astronaut, Tim Peake, took 2Kg of Rocket seeds into space with him, as part of an investigation into the effect of micro-gravity on the seeds and its implications for growing food crops in space in the future. The children received 2 packet of seeds, one from the space seeds, one regular pack. We do not know which is which. We are growing them in identical conditions and the children will carry out several investigations and data collection. All the information will be fed back to the UK Space Agency, who have initiated the project, along with RHS.

This is a great opportunity to turn the children into real live scientists, whose findings will contribute to the viability growing crops in space in the future.
