AMSAT dare not and did not.  Attending the conference were KA3HDO, W3IWI, 
W3PK, and W4ART, on behalf of AMSAT and the IARU Amateur Satellite 
Frequency Coordination Panel.

We spent a great deal of time over two days taking in everyone's 
presentations and demonstrations; talking and teaching about amateur radio, 
world frequency management, the IARU coordination process; and much, much more.

Clearly, so many other possibilities exist for AMSAT interaction with 
schools.  If you've got some time, please, give me a ring and I'm happy to 
share some of my ideas and would love to hear yours.  Indeed, there are a 
number of AMSAT projects you might undertake to help the effort!!
