Students from Sault Ste. Marie will see their science experiment soar into space this year.

Last summer, the nonprofit organization Higher Orbits hosted a camp called Go For Launch at Lake Superior State University. Space Shell6, a team of six middle and high-school students from Sault Ste. Marie, studied cellular respiration within Bermuda grass.

The team recently was announced as winner of the camp competition, and part of their prize is to have their experiment spend 30 days on the International Space Station.
