The LaFayette Middle School Amateur Radio Club (W4LMS) had the opportunity to be one of 18 schools in the entire world to make contact with the International Space Station (NA1SS), specifically with Commander Suni Williams. The students who are members of the middle school’s amateur radio club asked about 15 to 16 questions to Commander Williams about life on the space station. The space station was visible in the sky for about 10 minutes, so it was a quick question and answer session. It was a great opportunity for the students, and I hope that this sparks an interest in engineering or the hard sciences.
Congrats to the students at LaFayette Middle School.
