Exciting news for John Glenn Middle School! Our school has been selected to make amateur radio contact with an astronaut on the International Space Station. Several students will speak live via the “ham” radio with the astronaut and ask a question that they wrote themselves. We are honored to be selected by the ARISS (Amateur Radio International Space Station) organization to help us connect with an astronaut in real time. With the help of local ham radio volunteers, we will be the 4th school in Minnesota to have this distinction. If all goes well, our history-making contact with the International Space Station will be in the afternoon of Wednesday, February 22nd.
