Rocket Science Blast Off! Day 1

Today marks the launch of the Rocket Seeds experiment. Working with the European Space Agency and The Royal Horticultural Society, eight of our Year 9 students will be sowing 200 seeds and closely monitoring their growth over 35 days.

The seeds were sown today; 100 seeds that have only ever been on this planet and 100 seeds that have recently returned from the International Space Station with British Astronaut, Tim Peake.

The aim of the experiment is to see if seeds that have been in zero gravity can germinate and grow into healthy plants. This is important if we are ever to colonise another planet!
