Students Complete Outer Space Tomato Seeds Experiment!

June 13, 2017 - When do tomatoes taste absolutely out of this world? Ms. Visentin’s Gr. 2 students at Holy Cross Elementary School will soon find out. The children put their green thumbs to work by conducting a tomato seed experiment with two sets of tomato seeds. One package of seeds had been placed on a space station for a period of six weeks while the second package of seeds remained on Earth. The students had to predict which tray of plants had been exposed to outer space, prior to their germination. Every morning, the class leader collected data by counting the number of plant germinations and then watered them. Close observations were made by the children with the use of magnifying glasses to see if one set of seedlings appeared to grow differently than the other. The children will soon find out which were actually the "space seeds”. Our Grade 2 scientists will then bring the plants home to see if they produce “out of this world” tomatoes over the summer break.
