Find out about a unique exobiology classroom experience with ExoLab-9, a science experiment where students from across the world compare their results with an identical growth chamber on the International Space Station (ISS).
Launching August 2021!
Find out how your school can be involved!
– Join an international school community to share results & ideas along with the U.S. National Laboratory.
– Collect and analyze data to identify the optimal combination of legume, bacteria, and soil to produce nodulation in the harsh environment of the space.
– Engage in experimental design, data collection and analysis, writing and revising hypotheses, and communicating about what they’ve learned using evidence from their experiments.
– Direct curriculum outcomes for high school and primary year groups.
– Guided by experienced educators from Fizzics Education & Magnitude.
– Find out about the equipment needed to be involved and the different ways that you can access this.
Students will have near real-time imagery of the growing seedlings on the ISS and will compare their in-class experiment with the results from microgravity in space.
This session will be run by:
- Ted Tagami, User Advisory Committee – Education Chair at the ISS US National Lab & cofounder of Magnitude
- Ben Newsome – Churchill Fellow, AMP Tomorrow Maker & Founder of Fizzics Education
This is a free information event available for all teachers, principals & librarians interested in being involved in a project with the International Space Station.
