RACINE - Two fourth-grade classes at Bull Fine Arts Elementary School were chosen to participate in the Monarchs in Space Program.

The program sent three monarch caterpillars supplied by Monarch Watch with the space shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station. The caterpillars, which were placed in a small rearing chamber, will be placed in an incubator onboard the ISS where the developing monarchs will be monitored. Still and video cameras will continually capture the images of the monarchs which will be made available online to students.

The Bull Fine Arts Elementary School classes are part of more than 400 classrooms around the nation which have been chosen to participate in the Monarchs in Space Program.

Students receive a monarch caterpillar kit so they can raise monarchs on Earth and follow the development of the creatures on the ISS.

The Atlantis returned to Earth on Friday.
