K-12 EDUCATION GRANT Making
WE SCOUR THE COUNTRY TO FIND AND PARTNER WITH BEST-IN-CLASS EDUCATION NON-PROFITS OFFERING CUTTING EDGE STEM AND APPLIED LEARNING PROGRAMS
Our goal is to collaborate with partners to help grow their footprints and generate impact within Massachusetts while investing in national work designed to increase efficacy at scale. We support these partners with planning assistance and real time problem-solving, devising multi-year scale plans that deliver impact and the funding to make it happen. We expand schools’ ability to access these programs by providing grants to schools that offset the costs of adopting new programs.
Where are we on this journey?
Four years into this initiative, over 500 K-12 schools in Massachusetts are engaging in this work to integrate applied learning into their classrooms using One8 funded programs.
- Over 175,000 MA students are engaging in applied learning through the programs we are supporting.
- High-quality applied learning and STEM programs are expanding in Massachusetts and available to schools who want to introduce them.
- 40% of MA districts are partnering with us in this work
- We have data to support the impact.
Let us take the child out to show him real things instead of making objects which represent ideas and closing them in cupboards.
