Chisenhale Pupils meet British Astronaut Tim Peake

We were thrilled to be asked to attend a conference in Portsmouth where we got to showcase our ‘Rocket Science’ growing project and meet ESA Astronaut Tim Peake. We had grown seeds which had been on the International Space Station for six months to see the effects zero gravity has on seed germination and growth. The project was organised by the Royal Horticultural Society in collaboration with the European Space Agency.
