Experience the space station - growing plants in space

I liked this video so much. I played it for my students. I did the following things with my students. Students were grouped and they were asked to think of innovative ways of growing crops and plants so that humans could have enough to eat. They are required to do research on the same and submit their proposals on how they could promote sustainability for food on earth. I implemented it for grade 8 students.
Also, my 6th graders do a program every year with Buehler Space Challenge. They work on remote team - the team that focuses on growing plants in space. This year, I am planning to have my 8th graders present their proposals to 6th graders. 6th graders will work on proposals that are promising to develop a prototype in class.
