Thomas a Becket Junior School Rocket Seeds

Mon 2 May 2016

On the 20th April 2016 space seeds arrived at Thomas a Becket Junior school after their long travel into space with Tim Peake. They received two packets of rocket seeds one that had been in space and one that had stayed on Earth. Some children within each Year 4 class planted their seeds and will be recording data over the next two months on the development of the seeds. This information will then be used to the help answer the question of 'can we grow food in space?'.
