A Space Farm was designed to illustrate for young students, how we might grow our food in an environment different from our own here on Earth. The Space Farm experiments permit young scientists to germinate seeds in nutrient solutions without using soil. After the initial germination occurs, students may gently transfer the sprouted seedlings to real soil from their own Earthly environment. Includes background information about hydroponic cultivation. Requires a minimum of 7 days for sprouting seeds prior to replanting. Designed for 24 students working in pairs. Required, but not included: one 1,000 mL beaker or one 2 quart container and distilled water.
