Tomatosphere Exploration!

Guess what....?! Our grade 3s are taking part in an amazing tomato experiment!

We have 2 mystery packages that contain tomato seeds: one package of seeds are regular tomato seeds and the other package spent 22 months in space on board the International Space Station.

The seeds went to space on July 8th, 2011 and returned back to Earth on May 15th, 2013 by Commander Chris Hadfield.

We will be planting our seeds and finding out if space has an impact on the way that tomato seeds grow. We are so happy to be a part of the Tomatosphere project! 

We will keep you posted on our findings...

Here is an introduction video that helped us explore some questions we had about the Tomatosphere project:
