6th Grade Science Take Part in “Tomatosphere”
Mrs. Waters’ 6th-grade science classes are participating in an international research study called “Tomatosphere”. You can learn about the program by clicking here!
Mrs. Waters applied to First Seed and received packets of tomato seeds. One package flew on the International Space Station and one has always been on Earth. The science classes are studying the germination and growth of the seeds to determine if the time in space impacts the seeds and plants.
The investigation began in mid March, and data was collected daily. Results were reported right before Spring Break began. This is a blind study, so Mrs. Waters’ class is anxious to find out which packet went to space and to be able to review the data collected by other classrooms. Check back after the break for pictures and the results of the experiment!
