On October 12, 2023, iLEAD Exploration learners on DreamUp Launch Team Charlie loaded their Mixstix with their groundbreaking experiment. One Mixstix will stay grounded here on Earth, while the other is destined for the International Space Station on November 5! Learners are excited to learn the answer to their question: “What are the effects of microgravity on the germination, root growth, and root structure of Glechoma hederacea?”
