ARISS educational radio contact with school in Portugal
An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at Agrupamento de Escolas Serafim Leite, Sao Joao da Madeira, Portugal.
The event is scheduled on Monday 27 January 2020 at approximately 16.33 UTC, which is 17.33 CEWT.
The contact is expected to be conducted in English.
The contact will be a direct between astronaut Luca Parmitano KF5KPD and CS2ASL.
The contact should be audible over parts of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.800 MHz narrowband FM downlink.
The Serafim Leite Schools is located in the north of Portugal in the city of Sao Joao da Madeira.
It was born in 1957, and during this 60 years of existence it has been growing.
It started by being a school with only the grammar and today has all levels of education:
First cycle, Second cycle, Third cycle and Secondary.
Currently it has more than 1200 students and 110 teachers that are distributed in three buildings that make up the Serafim Leite schools cluster.
Its identity is closely linked to vocational education that is a national reference in vocational education. The training offer includes Electronics, Computer, Mechanical, Audiovisual, Markting, Science and Technology, Socioeconomic Sciences, Visual Arts and recurrent adult education.
It is a school where children arrive still small in their parents' arms and leave the school like men and women who are already graduated with a high degree of knowledge.
It is in this educational environment where human and social values are privileged that our students grow with the notion that humanity is urgently required to take action to reverse the global warming of the earth, making their own school an Eco-School.
The astronaut could be our eyes helping us to look the Earth in another way.

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, CSA, ESA, Roscosmos, JAXA.
In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National Lab and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
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 public forums. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org.
