JVC-KENWOOD supports STEM education through new space-program fundraising initiative

KENWOOD radios and technical expertise have been integral to the success of the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program for over ten years and now, JVCKENWOOD and ARISS jointly announce a new fundraising initiative to expand ARISS youth education programs designed to interest young people in amateur radio in order to expand their engagement with STEM education.

“JVCKENWOOD is proud of the work we’ve done in supporting the ARISS program and honored to play a part in ARISS’ new initiative to enable more students in elementary and middle school to engage with the space program through communicating with ISS astronauts. Their fund-raising campaign will go a long way towards developing a generation of youth who will pursue careers in engineering, science and math. We believe that the work ARISS does ignites a passion for STEM education, promotes greater understanding among nations and sparks the interest in young people in technology and space exploration,” said Phil Parton, National Sales Manager, Amateur Radio, JVCKENWOOD USA Corp
