As plans to return to the moon, plant growth will be an important part of . NASA scientists anticipate that astronauts may be able to grow plants on the moon in specialized plant growth chambers. Come participate and build your own lunar growth chamber in the NASA Engineering !
Through the NASA Engineering Design Challenge, elementary, middle and high school students will:
- Design, build, and evaluate lunar plant growth chambers
- Receive cinnamon basils seeds flown on STS-118
- Test lunar growth chambers by growing and comparing both space-flown and earth-based control seeds
