Space Seeds Observation of space flowers
When ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst set off on his horizons mission, he had wildflower seeds in his luggage. How did these "space seeds" survive the journey into space? Primary school students from 10 Swiss cantons become researchers and help us find out.
The goal is to sow the wildflower seeds that were in space and reference seeds that remained on Earth and compare the growth of the two sowings. However, which seeds were in space and which were not is not yet known in this process. Students will assemble posters with collages and meaningful pictures of the wildflowers that grew to document and evaluate the experiment.
We will display the posters with the results here at the end of the school year.
