The H.A.L. Scouts Group Amateur radio Club (VU2LKO) Lucknow, India is deeply devoted to explore Amateur Radio activity among Scouts & Guides and other interested people in state.

NASA and other space agencies including Canada, Russia, the European Partners, and Japan & other international partners like AMSAT, ARRL, RAC etc. have started an unique programme known as ARISS to fulfill Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) goals for students education.
