Students From Marshall Win Contest

Most of us do science projects in school, but we don’t get to launch them into outer space.

Seniors at Marshall School in Duluth designed experiments around the lack of gravity in outer space.

Groups competed for the chance to have theirs actually launched to the international Space Station.

The winning experiment is mating frogs and performing tests on their embryos.

“We were interested in what would happen if we sent children into space or if we’re ever going to have to evolve in space,” said Marshall senior Anna Nordin. “So we wanted to see what effects microgravity would have on embryonic development.”

The experiment will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida in June.
