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 crewmembers 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
