ARISS lets students worldwide experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of the International Space Station (ISS), inspiring them to pursue interests in careers in science, technology, engineering, and maths, and engaging them with radio science technology through amateur radio.
Years 3 to 6 students have worked on questions they want their class representatives to ask the astronaut. These questions have been submitted to ARISS and NASA for consideration.
Our time slot for the interview with Serena Aunon-Chancellor (American physician, engineer, and NASA astronaut, serving as a flight engineer in the current expedition to the ISS) is 6.24pm on Tuesday 17th July as the ISS passes over Australia. Please arrive at our School Hall at 5.30pm; official proceedings will commence at 6pm. If you are unable to attend the event in person, you can still participate by watching the live broadcast on YouTube - click here.
This will be a whole school and community event and we are very excited about this wonderful opportunity for our school.
