Year 8 students Ben Daley, Rory Jenner and Sheridan Brady entered an Australia-wide competition to win a chance to grow wattle seeds that will be flown to space and back. The students needed to create a 90 second video explaining why our school should be selected.
The seeds will be part of the payload on the SpaceX mission in December 2020. The students will receive seeds from the space mission and compare seeds that remained on earth.
The project will take at least a year and it is envisaged that the wattle trees will then be planted and a map be made of all the ‘space wattle trees’ around Australia.
