GAVRT now offers Online training free of charge. Email to get started running a radio telescope.

The GAVRT program allows you and your students to operate a 34 meter (112 foot) radio telescope from your classroom. Partnered with scientists and other observatories from around the world, you will do real research and exploration. We cannot predict exactly what you will see!
