Very excited to hear that we have been successful applying for seeds from the National Space Station to take part in the experiment! Click video clip below to see Tim tell you all about it!
The seeds are due to arrive after the Easter holidays.
Scroll down for our diary of the experiment!
Tuesday 26 April (day 1)
So the seeds have arrived! This morning we planted them - we had very precise instructions to ensure it is a fair test! We had to label each seed with a number and whether it came from the red seed packet, or blue. The seeds were tiny and quite tricky to pick up with a pincer grip and put into the hole we had made in the soil with a pencil. Everyone wrote labels for and planted three seeds. We now have to wait and see!
We will be recording information on days 10, 17, 21, 28 and 35!
We are Space Biologists!
