Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS)

 

ARISS lets students worldwide experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of the International Space Station, inspiring them to pursue interests in careers in science, technology, engineering, and maths, and engaging them with radio science technology through amateur radio.

 

Years 3 to 6 students will be working on questions they want their class representatives to ask the astronaut over the next few weeks. These questions will be submitted to ARISS and NASA by the end of June. Applications to be one of the twelve students to ask a question closed on Monday 4th June.

 

Our time slot for the interview is in the week Monday 16th to Sunday 22nd July.

 

This will be a whole school and community event and we are very excited about this wonderful opportunity for our school.
