Life Development and the Space Environment
In this activity, children observe the life development of two types of animals: fruit flies and zebrafish. They compare the changes that occur in these insects and fish with changes in human development from infancy to adulthood. They also learn about how scientists on the International Space Station will study the development of fish and insects in space to prepare for long term space endeavor for humans.
