After only 3 days, our seeds started to germinate! Little shoots and leaves started to appear.
Our y7 astrobiologists are busy watering, recording, rotating, measuring, counting, and calculating; and obviously doing a very good job!
Day 10…percentage germination of the replicants was recorded.
“It is fantastic to see this group of students being real scientist! They clearly feel like real scientists and are being inspired to find out the impact of space travel on seed germination and growth. Their experiment is highly organised and they are tracking the progress of the seedlings with expert precision. I was most impressed by the energy and enthusiasm of these young scientists and their ideas of how changes in gravity might impact germination and growth of plants”.
