This kit has been designed to illustrate to young students, how we might grow our food in an environment other than ours here on the earth. The Space Farm experiments permit young scientists to germinate seeds in nutrient solutions without using soil. After the initial germination occurs, students may transfer the sprouted seedlings to real soil from their own environment. Includes background information on hydroponic cultivation. Required, but not included: 1,000 mL beaker or 2-quart container and distilled water. Designed for 24 students working in pairs.
