Through Tomatosphere™, your students will investigate the effects of outer space on the germination of tomato seeds. This is a hands-on program that builds scientific inquiry and experimentation skills.
Why are there so many colours of plants? Learn about plant pigments and their role in plants.
Learn about the different ways that plants move in response to their environments.
Learn how scientists define independent, dependent and controlled variables in experimental inquiry.
Learn how scientists identify and minimize bias and sources of error to produce accurate results.
Learn how soil is different on Mars than on Earth, and what that means for growing plants on the red planet.
A look at the taxonomic classification of the tomato plant and the origin, history and development of tomatoes.
Learn about the characteristics of the Earth and Mars, two planets in our Solar System.
Send a postcard to space and back thanks to a partnership with Club for the Future. The Club’s mission is to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM and help visualize the future of life in space. This page describes the project and how to get your postcards to space.
Spark creativity and curiosity by sending a postcard to space thanks to a partnership between Tomatosphere™ and Club for the Future founded. Students will imagine the jobs of the future in space and represent their thoughts on a postcard which will then be sent to space.
