and November 1, 2013. To maximize these radio contact opportunities,
NASA is looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of
participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed education
plan. Radio contacts are approximately 10 minutes in length. ARISS
contacts are supported by the program's US partners -- the ARRL and
http://www.amsat.org/ -- and their member volunteers, as well
as other international space agencies and Amateur Radio partners.
Proposals are due January 28, 2013.
Interested parties can visit the ARRL website
or the NASA Teaching From Space website
http://www.nasa.gov/education/tfs/ariss for information about
proposal requirements and how to submit a proposal, as well as links to
audio and videos of archived contacts. Five information sessions are
also available for groups who are considering submitting an ARISS
proposal. Access to the Internet and a telephone line are required to
connect to a session. Information on how to sign up for these sessions
is available on the ARRL and NASA websites.
