“The idea that the kids were ‘Space Farmers’ and doing something here that was being done or had been done in space was fascinating to them. This was a great tool to use for botany-based science. The study of plant parts and leaf types was great for an upper elementary or middle school group.
More than just studying plants, though, this project was a great way to introduce the scientific process in general. We had to ask several questions, form a hypothesis, set up control and variable situations, conduct, troubleshoot, and analyze and communicate our results. We compared our results to those done by professionals, which gave the kids an extra boost of enthusiasm and feeling of responsibility, which was beautiful to watch.”
