  • This will be a pilot program - TeachOSM will work with the US Census Bureau’s Stats in Schools program to plan a nation wide deployment of the program.
  • During the pilot, TeachOSM will learn what factors make for a successful program and work with the Bureau to refine program content and execution to insure a successful nationwide rollout of the program.
