GB1SS: schools speaking to Tim Peake

| June 13, 2016

The 10 school contacts with Tim Peake on the ISS have inspired thousands of young people and introduced them to amateur radio in a new and exciting way

Our new video celebrates these historic events and the range of linked activities the schools have enjoyed.

Beginning with the exhilaration of the launch, it follows the competition for schools to host the ARISS contacts, and showcases the variety of science, technology, engineering, maths (STEM) and arts activities that helped pupils to understand more about space and amateur radio.

The contacts themselves, often led by newly-licensed pupils, were the successful culmination of many months of work and anticipation.

We congratulate every one involved and hope you enjoy our celebration at
