About this Project

The year 2020 has become one of the most challenging years for all school across the globe. For this group of innovative students it was even more so as they found themselves having to work as a team in online working at 3 and sometimes 4 different locations across the globe. Yet these students found a way to run plant experiments, shared data in real time(although completely different time zones), and grow viable plants in the end. Students used seeds from food they ate and plants in their yards to look at the effect of light on growth. They used tools they designed to run the floating disks experiments at home. They then shared all of this with two scientists who were also in different countries as well. In addition, they got one their families involved an are developing small home gardens so they can have fresh vegetables at home.
