- August: ARISS educator Drew Deskur, head of the Kopernik Observatory and Science Center in Vestal, NY, planned several social-distanced summer STEM youth camps for various ages that had lessons tied to ARISS. Youth aged 8 and 9 got to try coding, build and program robots, learn about ARISS, and engineer differing solutions to problems. Youth studied a bit about astronomy, as well. After learning some electrical principles, circuit design and safety rules, middle-school-age youth worked with multi-meters and soldering irons to build electronic-kit projects.
- September 3: ARISS thanks the NASA team for Kathryn Lueders’ (Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate) posting on LinkedIn about the ARISS program. The ARISS team distributed a news release about the LinkedIn item and 9 e-news outlets--some national, some regional including several ARRL web sites--picked up the release for thousands to read. ARISS further amplified the LinkedIn post by including the story on the ARISS-USA web page and ARISS-International web page. A week after the NASA item was posted, LinkedIn Reactions totaled 97.
