A group of St. Andrew School children are participating in an experiment that is, well-- out of this world.
Newschannel 7 caught up with a group of agri-science students at Arnold High School's greenhouse this morning.
The kids were given two batches of tomato seeds including one batch that spent some time in outer space.
They have already grown the seeds into small plants and the Arnold students helped put their plants in the ground.
They will be monitoring the plants to find out which batch grows more successfully.
Many of the Arnold students are participants in the schools Future Farmers of America program.
One part of FFA is interacting and teaching their skills to other students
This experiment which is called tomato-sphere is taking place in 9,000 classrooms in Canada and the United States.
