A group of Columbia high school students is playing a scientific role in the International Space Station.
The student experiment was sent to the ISS on a SpaceX rocket this past Sunday. It is designed to help determine if plants can be successfully grown in low or no gravity environments.
It was prepared by Keenan High tenth graders, Tevin Glover, Cedric McQueen and Parker Matthews.
The science project joins 20 other similar tests submitted by students from around the country selected for the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program.
