Rocket Science

5MT is taking part in an exciting experiment alongside The UK Space Agency.  This experiment is called Rocket Science.  We were sent a booklet and two packets of rocket seeds: one of these packets has stayed on Earth, whereas one has been to space!  But which one?  Red or blue?


There were 100 seeds in each packet for us to plant, which we planted in 8 trays of 25.  Over the next 6 weeks, we will be monitoring them to see how many germinate after a certain amount of time and then recording other results, such as the number of leaves on each plant.  Will there will be a difference?  We are looking forward to finding out.
