British School Connects to ISS via AudioVid

Sevenoaks School & International Space Station from Graeme Lawrie on Vimeo.
The Sevenoaks School successfully hosted a live satellite video link with the orbiting International Space Station (ISS) on 20 January 2011 during a presentation by Dr. Nicholas Patrick, a NASA representative and mission specialist. Sevenoaks is the first UK school to have attempted a live video and audio link with a space vehicle of any sort. Other schools in the UK have spoken to ISS astronauts via radio links. All six space station crewmembers participated in a NASA PAO TV downlink for the Russian educational event with the Sevenoaks School at Sevenoaks, Kent, United Kingdom.

Good Morning. Graeme Lawrie here - Head of Science and Technology for Sevenoaks School. Many thanks for posting this. The school is a buzz with this event and the students are already emailing me about career paths in engineering etc. This as really worth doing - the NASA team were superb and special thanks to Oleg Volkov for his support.
