Plants in Space

You and your students can participate in an exciting investigation taking place in space and on Earth. The Plants in Space project will examine plant root growth in microgravity. You and your students can grow ground-based control plants in your classroom, download hourly photographs from the International Space Station, and design your own experiments using the data from space. The live experiments begin on September 19. Find out more and register for the free teacher guide on BioEd Online ( and K8 Science (
