Taking a Bill & Ted approach to discover how we can use the knowledge of the past to create an excellent future. We “kidnap” historical figures from all over the world and then learn about them, their time, and their place. We learn about conquerors, contributors, explorers, and liberators such as Joan of Arc, Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon, Genghis Khan, Billy the Kid, Beethoven, and Socrates.
“We can change tomorrow. It comes around so fast,
With one foot in the future. One foot in the past.”
