ARISS Event -- School of Back (Bhac) Scotland contact next Wednesday

The ARISS team is pleased to announce that the next school contact with
the International Space Station astronauts will take place Wednesday,
17 March between the ISS crew and students at the School of Back
(Bhac), Isle of Lewis, Scotland.

Please note, this NA1SS contact will be a telebridge contact via
station WH6PN out of Honolulu, Hawai'i.  Therefore, listeners in the
Pacific islands near the 50th state are most likely to hear astronaut
responses to the students' questions on the 145.80 MHz downlink.

This contact will be streamed over the web.

Further information including streaming parameters and student
questions will be posted as it becomes available.

"Back School is situated on the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of
Scotland.  It is a 5-14 school in that it caters for pupils from the
age of 5 through to the end of their second year in Secondary
education.  Its primary cohort has two streams, one taught through the
medium of Gaelic and the other taught through the medium of English.
All the classes in the Secondary department are taught through the
medium of English."

ARISS is an international educational outreach program with US
participation from NASA, AMSAT (The Amateur Satellite Radio Corp.), and
the American Radio Relay League.  ARISS offers an opportunity for
students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking
directly with crewmembers on-board the International Space Station.
Teachers, parents and communities experience, first hand, how Amateur
Radio and crew members on ISS can energize youngsters interest in
science, technology, and learning.  Further information on the ARISS
programme is available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss
