What would happen to your morning cup of coffee in space? What about the sandwich you made for lunch? The birds in your backyard? Your car keys? Your whole car? That was the question that teachers at Alakaʻi O Kauaʻi Charter School asked their students earlier this year.

Some of those students will get to have their questions answered! The Conversation spoke to School Director David Adams about this project involving sugarcane and the International Space Station.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Jan. 11, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.
