We’re already two and a half months into the 2011-2012 school year!
Students that participated in STS-135 were able to take a look at their samples this summer. Unfortunately none of their organisms maintained integrity, making it impossible for them to count the number of paramecium in each sample. Discussions ensued regarding the hardiness of organisms for future space flight.
Speaking of future spaceflight, our students have now embarked on experimental design competition portion of SSEP’s Mission 1 to the International Space Station!!! Our consortium looks a little different this year as we extended opportunity to other independent, Northwest Indiana schools. Avicenna Academy is collaborating with Forest Ridge Academy and Highland Christian School.
Our statement of works can be seen here.
Stay tuned for updates!
