In February 2017, four teachers from Salado Intermediate School (Corey Baird, Colleen Gilchrest, Darcy Madsen, and Laura Tomlin) attended the Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC) at Johnson Space Center in Houston. They learned of an opportunity through ARISS, Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, in which students could have a live question and answer session with an astronaut aboard the ISS. A proposal, including a technical and education plan, was submitted in April 2017. By mid-June, ARISS announced that the Salado Intermediate School (SIS) was one of thirteen organizations in the United States that would make contact with the International Space Station in the spring of 2018.
