ARISSat-1 is an amateur radio satellite to be hand launched from the International Space Station during an EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity).
A tentative date for the launch is October 2010.
Teachers and students are invited to fly a file aboard this amateur radio satellite. The ARISSat-1 Team wishes to include on our new satellite a memory stick of files prepared by students. This should be a jpg or pdf of things the student has prepared such as a paper or a study done on a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) topic, a drawing of space craft or a schematic, a journal kept on a STEM topic, a story or news article about a STEM subject, a photo of the class doing a hands-on STEM activity -- that type of thing.
Files should be either .JPG or .PDF -- no Word documents, please. Please send files to Dave Jordan's address -- firstname.lastname@example.org
If the file contains photos or names of persons, a "Talent Authorisation and Release" is requested. The appropriate document can be downloaded from HERE.
The permission slip has to be signed by the student or his/her guardian if the student is a minor.
The signed Release Form is to be e-mailed in pdf format to Dave Jordan.
Deadline for submitting files: March 1st, 2010.
