The Future!

We will do everything we can to help Global teachers get going -- things will always go slower than we like, but we will get there!!

We all figure out how to make GHOU succeed around the world!

Students and teachers from Everywhere can begin to discover the scientist and astronomer within themselves!

We all start to work together and learn from and help each other.

5) We learn a lot and have a lot of fun!!


Make the difference
