The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders is a unique all-girls
school founded to educate young women and give them the confidence and
skills necessary to succeed in college, in their careers, and in their
communities. We are a public school in the Austin Independent School
District serving over 700 girls in 6th through 12th grade. The girls
partake and excel in engineering design projects and robotics competitions.
The demographics of our student body mirror that of our local community.
During the 2011  2012 school year, 61% percent of our students were
Hispanic, 22% are Caucasian, 13% were African-American, 3% were
Asian-American and 1% were American Indian/Alaskan Native. Two hundred of
the girls will be gathered as 10 of their peers ask questions on behalf of
all grade levels during the ARISS contact.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

EchoLink *AMSAT* (101377) and *JK1ZRW* (277208) servers

IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector

Streaming Audio at: https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/

Audio on Echolink & web stream is generally transmitted around 20 minutes
prior to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the
preparation that occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station
call to the ISS.

Please note that on Echolink there are automatic breaks of 1.5 seconds in
the audio transmission. These occur every 2.5 minutes during the event.
Breaks on IRLP are manual and occur approximately after every third
question.

** Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other
manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes
