Testing seeds from the International Space Station
Settle Primary School are taking part in the Rocket Science Experiment being run by the Royal Horticultural Society and the European Space Agency (see the end of this post for a link to find out more about the experiment).
They are making a fair test in which they have planted 100 seeds that have been in space and 100 seeds that have stayed on Earth. They are germinating the seeds and growing the seedlings in exactly the same conditions and recording data to send for analysis by leading scientists at the Royal Horticultural Society and the European Space Agency.
