Subj: [gsfc-nasavt] ARISS Opportunity  Announcement




NASA is now accepting proposals from U.S.  schools, museums, science 
centers and community youth organizations to host an  Amateur Radio on the 
International Space Station, or ARISS, contact between  November 1, 2012 and May 1, 
2013. To maximize these radio contact  opportunities, NASA is looking for 
organizations that will draw large numbers  of participants and integrate the 
contact into a well-developed education  plan. Proposals are due July 2, 
2012. 

Using amateur radio,  students can ask astronauts questions about life in 
space and other  space-related topics. Students fully engage in the ARISS 
contact by helping  set up an amateur radio ground station at the school and 
then using that  station to talk directly with a crew member on the 
International Space Station  for approximately 10 minutes. The technology is easier to 
acquire than ever  before. ARISS has a network of mentors to help you 
obtain the technology  required to host this once in a lifetime opportunity for 
your  students.

To obtain the proposal guide and form along with details  about online 
informational sessions, contact Teaching From Space, a NASA  Education office,
