First Graders Plant Space Exposed Seeds

Windy Phillips’ first grade class at Ocean City Elementary School recently planted space-exposed cinnamon basil seeds that flew aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on mission STS-118. Students are comparing the growth of the space-exposed seeds to seeds that have remained in climate-controlled conditions. Pictured, from left, are Kaela Gilligan, Cali Peters and Summer Vorsteg.
