What are educators saying?
Michael Lister, Asst. Principal Saltonstall School, Salem, MA
“For our students, working with CiS brings legitimacy and relevance to environmental sustainability issues and the need for us to address them as a society. Our students work with the CiS team and college mentors learning about environmental issues and science from adults other than their teachers. Our students are left craving more from CiS as they begin to see their world differently, how to apply practical solutions for sustainability and truly make a difference.”
Christine Senechal & Samantha Colby, Science Teachers, Grade 6, Ipswich, MA
"The relationship we have developed with Change is Simple has been a positive one that has greatly benefitted our curriculum and our students experiences. Change is Simple provides us with materials, knowledge and additional staff to run focused hands-on critical thinking activities with our students."
Dr. Stephen Hiersche, Superintendent, Beverly Public Schools
Within our elementary schools CiS is providing powerful hands-on education. Children build their science knowledge and make changes to their behaviors to reduce their environmental impacts both in school and at home. Students absolutely love the program, teachers and parents are thrilled with the education model and see a genuine shift in kid's thinking and behavior.
CiS not only inspires environmental action but allows students to use math and literacy skills in real world applications which has proven to impact students of all learning levels.

Out of school time program over February vacation and the kids are still raving about it.
My favorite quote from a 3rd grade boy who stated he hated science: " Wow , this kind of science is so cool and I'm really really good at it!" Hats off to the team for instilling fun hands on learning that sticks!
