    Radio astronomical observations can be carried out during day time and even in poor weather conditions. This makes them ideal for teaching astronomy interactively in the classroom. In a short time, it is possible to detect the radio emission from neutral hydrogen gas in our own Galaxy, the Milky Way, and to map the distribution of this gas in the spiral arms.

    EU-HOU and other european projects have developed radio telescopes which are available to pilot schools for real time observations via the Internet.
