This week, The Michaelis Foundation in collaboration with the KSCIA International Space Academy had the honor to have a very special Space Expert meeting with STEM students.
Dr. Stutte was able to present how, in order for us to become a space-faring species, the challenge of growing plants in space must be met--and how that vision can be used to meet the challenge of feeding a rapidly growing population facing climate change, limited resources, and increased demand.
High school students from Brazil (shown in image) who are participating in KSCIA International Academy's Journey to Mars program are sharing what they learned with Dr. Stutte. SyNRGE developed the "Plants in Space Education" curriculum with a grant from the Michaelis Foundation for International Education.
