BAMS in Space
In 2018, Bellefonte Area School District partnered with ARISS – Amateur Radio on the International Space Station -- to bring a unique program to the middle school. BAMS was just one of 13 schools in the country to be able to speak in live-time with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station. The goal of ARISS is to promote STEM subjects like science, technology, engineering and math, and encourage student participation to help prepare for the event.
