Rocket science at Somercotes Academy

On Wednesday 20th April 2016 we visited North Somercotes Academy. We planted red seeds and blue seeds, one packet of the seeds have been in space with Tim Peake and the other packet has been on earth all the time. We don’t know which packet has been up to space. The experiment is to find out which seeds grows the fastest.

The investigation is to see if we can find out which packet has come from space. First of all we all thought that the blue seeds had come from space. However having measured and watered the plants every other day we’ve found out that some of the plants haven’t grown from both the blue and red packets.

The red seeds have grown the fastest, we assume this is because we think these ones were left on earth.   

Next week we go back to Somercotes Academy to continue our investigation.
