ARISS Forms Education Committee

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, or ARISS, has been connecting astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the ISS with school groups around the world for over a decade. Now, according to Newsline, a new committee has been formed to get more input from teachers on how ARISS can better help meet their educational goals. 

The U.S. Education Committee of Amateur Radio on the International Space Station is made up of teachers from kindergarten to college level, all tasked with making recommendations for an even better experience and a better tie-in with curricular goals, especially in "STEM" fields - science, technology, engineering and math.
