Rocket Science Project

This Summer our Year 5 will be participating in an ‘Out of this World’ educational project organised by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening partnered by the UK Space Agency.  Two kilograms of rocket seeds accompanied by British ESA Astronaut Tim Peak on his six month Principia Mission aboard the International Space Station.  After several months on board, the seeds landed safely back on Earth in Kazakhstan with Commander Scott Kelly of NASA and Russian Cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Sergy Volkov of Roscosmos. Archdeacon Cambridge’s have now received two packets of 100 seeds to grow and compare and our findings will be uploaded onto a national online database so that results can be compared across all schools in the UK.


We are looking forward to celebrating Book Week and Science Week in School during March!
