Welcome to our wonderful world of Science.

This term, we were sent a package from Space! That’s right, Tim Peake, the latest British astronaut to go up into space, sent us some real-life rocket seeds! Half of these had been up in space and the other half had not. Our challenge was to grow these and to compare what, if any, were the differences. Would the seeds from space grow quicker or slower? Would they last longer or need less water? Would green martians come out of them?!

Over the course of 6 weeks, we took hundreds of photographs of the seeds’ growth and here is the time lapse video of what we saw.
