An International Space Station school contact has been planned for Joe Acaba KE5DAR with Summa-Aldapeta, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain. The event is scheduled on Tuesday 12 December at 13:01:28 UTC.
The contact will be a direct between OR4ISS and EG2SMA.
The contact should be audible in parts of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.800 MHz downlink.
Summa Aldapeta is a Catholic co-educational school owned by three religious orders, The Society of Mary - (Marianist brothers and priests), The Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist sisters) and the Order of the Company of Mary our Lady and operated by agreement with the educational authorities. Through a unique collaboration, it has served the city for more than a hundred years.
The school is located in three close premises in the city centre of San Sebastian- Donostia, north of Spain. These three buildings give us the possibility of adapting to the needs of today's students and allow us to have a much closer relationship with students and their families.
Nowadays there are around 2,000 students from the age of 1 up to the age of 18 at Summa Aldapeta, with a dedicated staff, truly dedicated to the spirit of educating the whole student, engaged in innovation and new methodologies.
We offer our students, families and society an integral and quality education. Our goal in education is to develop every student as a person, educating them to interact and communicate with others, stimulating their abilities, educating them in healthy lifestyles and equality. We share these goals with our families and society.
The city has been selected as European Capital of Culture for 2016 (shared with Wroclaw, Poland).
Communication in its different ways plays a key role in Cultural exchange among nations. Amateur radio operators have been, since their very beginnings 100 years ago, a perfect example of the idea of culture “solidarity”. They have played an active role in many humanitarian interventions in natural disasters, medicine searches or missing people. These are values we want to share in Summa Aldapeta.
