LCO students prepare project for the International Space Station

Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School students load an egg experiment that eventually ended up at the International Space Station (ISS) on Monday, Dec. 7.

A student project from Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School flew on SpaceX-21 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday, Dec 6, and arrived at the station on Monday, Dec. 7.

The students’ experiment will test how microgravity affects the development of rainbow trout. It was designed by eighth graders Evan Heath, Thomas White and Kane LaRonge. The students proposed the project as part of a school (5-12 LCO and Waadookodaading) competition for the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) last fall.
