Learn about space with these free activities.
Here’s an easy experiment you can do to see the differences in how plants grow on Earth compared to how they grow in microgravity on the International Space Station. In this experiment, you will make your own “Alien Head” and watch it grow. Then, you can compare its growth to that of grass on the International Space Station.
Do you know why things float in space? It might not be why you think! In this activity you can make your own MixStix to see how density and gravity works on Earth and compare it to how it works on the International Space Station.
