The Space Education Center has an important objective to inspire the next generation by experiencing science. JAXA and human spaceflight have a unique ability to capture the imaginations of both students and teachers. The presence of humans onboard ISS has provided a foundation for some educational activities aimed at capturing that interest and motivating study in the sciences, culture and engineering. We have started two types of educational programs using spaceflight plant seeds, since 2008.
