North Dakota NASA Space Grant Consortium
Talk to an Astronaut on the International Space Station for a Once-in-a-lifetime Experience!
Have you ever called an astronaut while they're in space? You can now!
Come join the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) and the UND HAM Radio Club in their first Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact! K-12 students, their teachers, and college students from all across North Dakota will be able to submit questions and ask the astronauts themselves.
On the day we call the International Space Station, there will be fun science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities for all students and teachers in Grand Forks, on the UND campus.
You will be able to:
Visit the interactive space flight simulators, electric interplanetary rover, and actual space suits used in analog missions.
Visit the hands-on STEM activity booths (targeted towards k-8 students).
Attend a career fair (targeted towards high school and college students).
Tour the STEM research facilities at UND.
Listen to educational lectures (appropriate for different age levels and the public depending on the specific talk).
Track the International Space Station in real-time as it orbits Earth.
