Change is Simple has been a powerful STEM partner for Beverly since 2011. The partnership has proven to be successful at all 5 elementary schools. Beverly and CiS plan to expand that partnership in 2017-18 to build capacity for 75 classroom teachers, integrate newly formed Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and support Green Community initiatives. Funding for the program has come through many different community partners. The schools have committed to 25% of the overall cost of $36,000, we are seeking a Corporate Partner(s) to fund the remaining $10,000.
