The students asked Canadian Space Agency astronaut Chris Hadfield 12 questions in the 10-and-a-half minutes the station was in range.

The educational program was delivered by volunteers with the amateur radio on the International Space Station (ARISS).

The organization ARISS Canada aims to inspire students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math through amateur radio communications opportunities.

ARISS is an international working group of delegations from nine countries, including Canada, Japan, Russia, the U.S. and several European countries.

The organization is run by volunteers from national amateur radio organizations and the Radio Amateur Satellite Corp. from each country.
