Growing Beyond Earth

Students in "Honors Biology" and members of the "Earth Angels" club are participating in “Growing Beyond Earth.” This highly successful classroom-based citizen science research project is conducted by Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and NASA. SJA students are participating in a series of authentic plant experiments, using equipment similar to NASA’s Vegetable Production System. 

The Angels prepared for the project by Zooming with professional scientists and planting outredgeous red romaine lettuce (a plant that is also being grown in the International Space Station). 
St. Joseph’s Academy is a private, Catholic high school for girls in St. Louis, Missouri, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Our mission is to provide quality Catholic education for young women in an environment that challenges them to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others. Our community expects these young women to make a profound impact in the world.
