Lunar Plant Growth Chamber

invites students to design chambers for growing plants on the moon. (Plants may be used to supplement meals of astronauts during space exploration.) Teacher guides include lessons on providing light and water for the plants, choosing plant species, exploring the moon, and designing, building, and evaluating plant growth chambers.

Interesting Fact:

Scientists conduct experiments using a process called the scientific method. With the scientific method, researchers start by observing something they don't understand. They then review the background information about the topic and state the problem. Next, they form a hypothesis of what they think will happen, and design and do an experiment to test their theory. After collecting and analyzing the data from the experiment, they draw conclusions.
