Challenge #4 Growing Beyond Earth

NASA-Collaborative Research: Growing Beyond Earth

MEDIA: Poster

YOUR CHALLENGE: Since 2015, middle and high school students have participated in the Growing Beyond Earth (GBE) project, and have collected valuable data such as germination rates, growth habits
and edible biomass production for over 110 varieties of edible plants. Results of these student-led experiments helped NASA scientists to select two of the four new plants to test on the International Space
Station. This year, students will experiment with continuous harvest procedure on new plant varieties and evaluate their potential for future space travel. Upon completion of a [mandatory] initial 28-day trial, and [optional] 50-day trial, analyze your data and create a research poster showing your results.
