ARISS Project, Luitpold Gymnasium München
The Luitpold Gymnasium in Munich is a Secondary School with a strong scientific program. Part of this program is the "W-Seminar" headed by the physics teacher Joachim Hoffmüller. A central highlight of this seminar is a direct radio contact between the school's amateur radio station and the International Space Station ISS.
The W-Seminar interacts with many other subjects, such as biology, geography, maths, English, Italian, art and others as almost all of these subjects refer to human spaceflight in some way.
The event took place on Thursday March 17, 2011 at 14:04 UTC.
