Item #: 9136: Space Age Biosphere: Grow Plants on Mars!
Discover Mars, build biosphere dome, make gel, plant seeds, grow plants, and catalogue them!
Build a biosphere on Mars, and grow plants like astronauts did in space. Start by mixing the Space Age Gel with water. After it sets, sow seeds into the Space Age Gel, and watch them germinate within a few days. Then let your baby plants grow for 2 weeks, and then you will transplant them into the peat moss provided. Place inside Biosphere, and watch them grow even bigger each day. After your four different plants have outgrown the Biosphere, you can catalogue them with the flower press provided. A fascinating experience for ages 7 and up.
Contents: 4 plastic containers with lids, liquid for gel, 4 capsules with gel powder, 1 bag each of basil, cucumber, pepper, and sunflower seeds, inflatable biosphere, 4 peat tablets, flower press, small stick, magnifying glass, identification cards, and instructions.
