A science experiment nicknamed #SproutsInSpace and designed by five École Ballenas students is going into space. This summer, when Mission 13 to the International Space Station (ISS) launches, the experiment, titled Investigating the Growth Patterns of Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) Sprouts in Microgravity: a Potential Nourishment for Future Manned Spaceflight, will be on board.

The students are raising funds to attend the launch of Mission 13 to the ISS at the Kennedy Space Centre  in Florida. In addition, they are raising funds to  present their experiment findings at the Student Science Education Conference at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
