ARISS is an international educational outreach program 
with participation of amateur radio societies in the USA, 
Canada, Europe, Russia and Japan. 

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
