Nature- Gardening,
Science
In the late 1980's, scientists began hypothesizing about growing food in space in preparation for the international space station and colonizing other planets. Biospheres were built and humans volunteered to live in them for 1-3 years at a time to mimic missions to other planets. Scientists studied nutrient requirements of plants, interpersonal relationships between participants, and environmental controls within these closed systems to explore scenarios astronauts might face when colonizing new planets. In this program, the library will build and host its own biosphere so students can learn about these closed systems in real time, and conduct experiments as if they were in space. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. This program is suitable for the 2019 Summer Reading theme.
