This is an amazing opportunity for Belen High School students to engage in real-world science and research in the Student Spaceflight Experimentation Program, a national program that will culminate in a micro gravity project being sent to the International Space Station.

The project is $8,000 away from the $24,000 goal and the deadline for funding commitments is Monday, Aug. 28.

There is a GoFundMe campaign to help the school reach its goal.

Belen High School is the only school in the state of New Mexico to participate in the Student Spaceflight Experiment Program.

This program will engage all BHS science students and 100's of elementary/middle school students in the design of a microgravity experiment.

One student team will earn the opportunity to have their experiment sent to the International Space Station, and present their findings at the Smithsonian.

You can also contact one of the BHS teachers or principal listed in the letter below to find out how you can help!
