The Tomatosphere™ experiment is a ‘blind’ test; teachers and students will not know the origin of the different types of seeds until the experiment is completed and the teacher has submitted the results. One set of seeds is the control group and the other set of seeds has been to the International Space Station (ISS). Each class enrolled receives two packages with a total of approximately 60 seeds – 30 of each of the two types – the “control” group (untreated) and the “space” seeds. Note that the seeds are packed by weight so, there can be a +/-5 variance in the number of seeds you receive.
