Pupils at Hamilton Grammar School are preparing to become space biologists and embark on a voyage of discovery by growing seeds that have been into space.
In September, 2kg of rocket seeds were flown to the International Space Station (ISS) on Soyuz 44S where they will spend several months in microgravity before returning to Earth in March 2016. The seeds have been sent as part of Rocket Science, an educational project launched by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the UK Space Agency.
Careers Convention for all S3, S4 and S5 pupils and their parents on the evening of 10th December form 7.00pm to 9.00pm in the school. There will be representative from Universities, Colleges and training agencies all offering advice and support for making option choices for next year.
