SIXTH GRADE TOMATOSPHERE CITIZEN SCIENCE PROJECT
Will tomato seeds from the International Space Station germinate differently from tomato seeds that have been kept on Earth?
79% of 6th graders believe that there will be a difference in germination.
Moore Square Magnet Middle School (a pilot Citizen Science school) students are participating in the Tomatosphere Citizen Science project. Sixth grade students in Mr. Hunter and Mrs. Kemp's science classes are growing two different types of tomato seeds to see if microgravity environments have impact seed germination. We will share our results with scientists. Watch the video to see how this project connects to outer space!
