Working With Schools

Our goal is to make Vantage Points resources readily available for classroom use.

Our Projects Manager, Ken Storie, welcomes the chance to answer questions about any of our work. He is more than willing to collaborate with teachers in finding additional resources and in devising ways to use the resources at hand.
