Sneak Peek #3 - Doll STEM Camp 2018


Ready to grow in science? Then today's sneak peek is just for you!


Here's your first look at the hydroponic station we'll be making this summer!

Hydroponics (the process of using water to grow plants) plays a big role in space exploration. There is no soil for plants in space, so hydroponics has become the popular alternative! Astronauts study, observe, and eat the greens they grow. The plants also help to provide oxygen inside the space station!


The lights give these photos a cool look, but they actually serve a purpose in hydroponics! LED lights provide the correct wavelength of light that plants need to grow, meaning that they can grow in dark places. In fact, Luciana used LED lights for hydroponics...

"Following the last steps of the protocol, we carefully loaded our plant pillows into the growing tray in the corner of the greenhouse. Then we put on protective sunglasses and flipped on the panel of lights, bathing ourselves in the glow of red, blue, and green LEDs."

Excerpt from Luciana: Braving the Deep

Stay tuned for Sneak Peek #4 tomorrow!
