GEAR UP Mississippi partners with Betabox for STEM outreach

Mississippi’s Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) initiative is partnering with North Carolina-based Betabox Learning to provide a STEM outreach initiative for the Meridian and Greenville public school districts in the 2021-2022 school year. The collaboration provides students and teachers in Meridian and Greenville — two districts served under the GEAR UP Mississippi initiative administered by Mississippi State University — access to high-quality, hands-on STEM experiences and curriculum. It marks the first endeavor between Betabox and Mississippi public schools.
