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

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers onboard 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.
