We are back from spring break and already have things to report on. We recently went to the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Connecticut to pitch a rough draft of our project. We got a ton of useful feedback from the audience. They seem to really amazed that we have connections to NASA, but didn't like how we had so much going on in the presentation. They said it was hard to follow because we had a lot of parts to our experiment. We plan to finalize our idea by May 1st, and present at the ExpoFest later that month. We are coming very close to the climax of our work. We will continue to post until the expo is over. Stay tuned.
We're about to leave for spring break, which means we'll have to put a halt on the majority of our experiment. We will return on the 18th of April. Of course we can't leave the plants unattended, so we will give a student the task of taking care of the plants over break. We hope you all have a great week! Until next time.
It's been a while since the last blog post, and I thought it was time to update you guys. We contacted a mentor from NASA, Morgan Simpson, and asked for her thoughts on the project. She was very helpful and we are looking to set up a real time interview in the near future. At the moment we are extracting the fast growing plants from our experiment and looking at the roots. As for the spinach and radishes, they are growing steadily, making great progress. The plants in the 10 second light had recently died off, so we concluded the 10 second light will not be better for the plants growth. We just started planning a documentary for our project, this will be started very soon. That is where we are at the moment, and we will continue to update this page.
