*** Focus on!!  ***  The panel 20 Years of STEM Experiments on the ISS  celebrates 20 years of student experiments using the ISS. The panel will begin with results from a new study of ISS education programs and their depth and reach. Panelists representing some of the major success stories will then share their experiences and insight. Panelists include representatives from Amateur Radio on the ISS (ARISS)—the first operational experiment on the ISS still in operation that has become an international program allowing students to use amateur radio to talk directly with ISS crew members, the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program—which engages thousands of students each year through in-orbit experiments, the Quest Institute—which has developed a series of low-cost ways for students to operate in-orbit experiments, EarthKAM—which enables thousands of students to take photos of Earth from the ISS, and the NASA HUNCH Program—a workforce development program in which students design and build experiments to be conducted on the ISS. Discussion will focus on the impact these experiences have on students and on the future of student experiments in space.
