For US Educators: Amateur Radio on the International Space Station--Students Talk to Astronauts

Call for Proposals -- Window is September 15 – November 15, 2017

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) Program is seeking formal and informal education institutions and organizations, individually or working together, to host an Amateur Radio contact with a crewmember on board the ISS. ARISS anticipates that the radio contact would be held between Jul 1, 2018 and Dec 31, 2018. Crew scheduling and ISS orbits determine the exact dates. To maximize these radio contact opportunities, ARISS is looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed education plan. Students learn about technology, communications, and science studied on board the ISS.

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 15, 2017. For proposal information and details such as expectations, proposal guidelines, proposal form and days/times of proposal webinars where questions are answered, go to http://www.ariss.org/hosting-an-ariss-contact-in-the-us.html
