Our school is born as a science high school, so the scientific method is at the center of all the lessons that work together to accustom students to the rational and experimental approach. Mathematics, physics, and science are the cornerstone of high school education. Attention to the scientific dissemination, participation in maths, sciences, and the current school year, including physics, characterizes our institute that has had important results with participation also in national finals.
In our school there is an association (Gruppo SIGMA Studenti e Insegnanti del Gullace per la Matematica) of pupils and former students who have distinguished themselves in mathematics: we could certainly organize the event with the help of the association.
We could invite to the event in the main hall students who will demonstrate the intention to participate in the project and who will find out during the year, among the pupils of the three years, until the 80 seats are filled up.

I.S.I.S. " Zaccagna - Galilei" sede "G. Galilei"
The mission of the State High School Galilei, part of I.S.I.S. Zaccagna, is « value the person », through an educational process built for the person and therefore the society. The school focuses on guiding the students in their future choices, both of study and work, but mostly on the greatest non-material asset available : the person as human capital, with his culture, value and knowledge. The two main goals are there for evaluing the person in all hispotential, and professional qualification.
The building hosting the event includes a Maths and Science High School and the Industrial and Technical State High School Galilei, with students aged between 14 and 20.
About 40 students from the Telecommunication course will be directly involved in the project (16-20 years old), while the connection might be extended to the entire learning centre, that includes about 1000 students ; it might also be possible for the local population to attend the event.

About ARISS:
Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA. The US Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) provide ARISS special support. 

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

The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio.  For more information, see www.ariss.org, www.ariss-eu.org and https://www.amsat-on.be/hamtv-summary/.

ARISS school contact planned for Bethesda, MD USA



International Space Station school contact has been planned for Nick Hague KG5TMV with participants at The Children's Inn at NIH (National Institutes of Health), Bethesda, MD USA 
The events is planned Monday September 23, 2019. It is scheduled to begin at approximately 20:08 UTC, which is 22:08 CEST.
The contact will be a telebridge operated by ON4ISS. The downlink signals will be audible in parts of Europe on 145.800 MHz

Event presentation
The Children's Inn at NIH is partnering with the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) and Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) to host Ask an Astronaut: Biomedical Science Edition. The event will give children receiving care at NIH a unique science and technology experience. They will learn about the importance of biomedical research in space, including NCATS' Tissue Chips in Space program, which recently sent five projects to the International Space Station and which some current crew members worked on (thank you!).

About The Children's Inn at NIH
The Children's Inn is an independent nonprofit that provides "a place like home" to families of children with rare or critical illnesses whose best hope is a clinical research trial at the NIH Clinical Center, the world's largest hospital dedicated to biomedical research. The Inn strives to fully and consistently meet the needs of our families during their children's treatments by providing housing and support services—all at no cost to them—and reducing the burdens of illness through therapeutic, educational and recreational programming.

The Ask an Astronaut event at The Inn will be different from ARISS's typical events with students in a classroom setting.  The children at The Inn are seriously ill, so the goal will be on having a fun and stimulating experience. Kids can enjoy the wonder of talking with astronauts on the space station, learning what it's like to live in space and work on cool science experiments like Tissue Chips in Space. They also can learn about ham radio and how the astronauts can use it to communicate with other children all around the world.

Thank you for taking time to speak with these children.
