BEAMS afterschool

BEAMS is the afterschool and summer enrichment program at Brattleboro Area Middle Sschool. Our mission is to actively engage BAMS students in high interest afterschool and summer programming in order to increase academic achievement, and improve social and emotional development and connections to school and the community. BEAMS brings together BAMS students, families, faculty, administration, and community members to support the needs of our children during afterschool and summer hours when middle school students are most at risk. Our Science, Technology Engineering and Math afterschool programs are some of our most popular, with clubs like the following; Pinball Machine Design, Amusement Park Design, Robotics, Science on Screen, Video, Rocketry, Design a Video Game and Kitchen Chemistry.
