Lessons from Space
As a proud UAE school, we are so fortunate to be able to provide our students with an opportunity to speak with a UAE trailblazer. Sultan Alneyadi will be the first amongst many who represents this fantastic country across new scientific frontiers, but he will always be the first. I am sure that his inspiration will serve to fuel the aspirations of JC students, and we are so honoured that he agreed to take questions form our students whilst on such a historic mission.
ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) is an organization which allows the opportunity for school students around the world to speak to the astronauts on board the International Space Station. Students are fascinated with space exploration and having the opportunity to speak with astronauts inspires our students to ask truly thought-provoking questions. I applied to ARISS for this event in March 2022 knowing that this would be an amazing event which would add a unique dimension to our students’ regular studies. I have been involved in 7 previous ARISS events in Wales, Kuwait and USA over the past 20 years.

"I have always been interested in space and knowing that if I sent a question in meant that it would be read and talked about in space excited me. So I sent in a few questions and one of mine got chosen. I will be asking Sultan Al Neyadi about some of the scariest things that have happened to him so far. This was a curiosity of mine as I don't know what happens in space."
