Thunmanskolan is, with a student number of about 600, the largest school in the municipality of Knivsta and encompasses grades 5 to 9. The school has been in existence since 1964. Students have access to computer rooms. These are used as a complement to the different taught subject like French, English, history etc. Thunmanskolan was the first school in Sweden with a Bulletin Board System (BBS) and they had their internet website up and running 2 years before Uppsala City Hall started their website.

Kashiwabara Community Center,  Sayama, Japan, direct via 8J1K. Wed 2006-12-27, 12:22  UTC

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the participating space agencies, NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and IARU organizations from participating countries.

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 see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning. Further information on the ARISS program is available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss  (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada). 

Thank you & 73,
