Our Grade 11 Environmental Science class has been working on an out of this world project. We are part of the award-winning Tomatosphere ™ program that will investigate the effects of space on growing food.
Students have designed their own ultimate growing medium and have planted two groups of tomato seeds: untreated ‘control’ tomato seeds, and that had been sent into space. As of this week, all seeds have successfully germinated!
This exciting project is sponsored by Lets Talk Science, the Canadian Space Agency, Stokes Seeds, and the University of Guelph.
