Space Bears – Lab-experience with Tardigrades

Space Bears – Lab-experience with Tardigrades

Brief description: In this set of experimental activities, students will investigate the survival abilities of tardigrades, also known as water bears. They will expose conditions and come to a conclusion about which environments they can survive in. The aim of this resource is to test tardigrades’ resilience to extreme environmental conditions and link their survival […] Read More

Could life survive in alien environments? – Defining environments suitable for life

Brief description: In this activity, students will consider whether life found in extreme environments on Earth could survive elsewhere in the Solar System. Students will examine the characteristics of different places in the Solar System and then use fact cards of some example extremophiles to hypothesise which they think might be able to survive in […] Read More

AstroCrops – Growing plants for future space missions

AstroCrops – Growing plants for future space missions

Brief description: In this set of activities, students will build an understanding of germination and plant growth by following the development of three unknown plants for 12 weeks. They will conduct measurements and make observations to evaluate their plant’s growth and health. Students will use their observations to make a hypothesis about which species of […] Read More

AstroFarmer – Learning about conditions for plant growth

AstroFarmer – Learning about conditions for plant growth

Brief description: In this set of six activities, students will investigate which factors affect plant growth, and relate these factors to growing plants in space. Students will learn that plants need air, light, water, nutrients and a stable temperature to grow. Students will observe what happens to plants when they vary some of these factors. […] Read More

AstroFood – Learning about edible plants in Space

AstroFood – Learning about edible plants in Space

Brief description: In this set of activities, students will learn about the different components of plants. They will learn which parts of plants are edible and learn the difference between a vegetable, a fruit and a seed. The students will have to imagine and draw the plant associated with the fruit/vegetable/seed they are observing. They […] Read More
