School SSTV CubeSat to Deploy from ISS

A Slow Scan TV (SSTV) CubeSat developed by students at Saint Thomas More Cathedral School (STM) in Arlington, Virginia, was deployed from the International Space Station on March 7 between 8-10am EST 

STM is thought to be the first Elementary school to build their own satellite, which included Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade students in the project.

The satellite, called STMSat-1, will transmit an SSTV signal on 437.800 MHz.
