STEMonstrations: Photosynthesis

Did you know astronauts are studying the effects of microgravity on plant growth? In this STEMonstration, astronaut Sultan Alneyadi tours the station’s plant growing facilities and delves into the process of photosynthesis. Learn about the experiments and how they are designed to optimize plant growth and food production in space. In the corresponding Classroom Connection, explore photosynthesis and predict how changing the variables of light, water, or carbon dioxide in the photosynthesis process might impact the health of a plant.
