The Gelfand Family Charitable Trust has provided funding to The Beverly School of Kenya to establish a state of the art science
complex on its campus and equip the school with the laboratory equipment needed to expose all of her students, from a very
early age, onto STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts and processes. In addition, The Beverly School is
in the process of developing a stellar Science and Engineering Fair that will serve as a model for all of Kenya and East Africa
based on The Massachusetts model.
We invite Beverly students to participate for the following reasons:
It will be very beneficial for teachers and students to attend our annual state fair to gain first hand experience from the oldest State Fair in The United States in order to enrich their STEM program in Kenya
The Beverly School is a pioneer school for Africa as well as first invitee from MSSEF
The students will present projects that have been developed and guided by procedures and safety standards based on the MSSEF model.
The GEMS program is so very excited to begin a collaboration with The Beverly School of Kenya to create a model science fair program and exchange opportunity for East Africa.
The MSSEF has a unique opportunity to facilitate both an intellectual and a cultural exchange between students. Benefits:
The Kenyan students would be able to use the MSSEF as a model for their own science fair and learn more about how to articulate their knowledge and interest in new ways.
The vision is for BSK to create a fund earmarked for this purpose so that their students can showcase their science projects and enhance their understanding of how STEM is conducted globally.

Perched on the cool and serene Rift Valley Escarpment, in Kinangop, the Beverly School of Kenya is redefining the whole concept of education in its pursuit to raise a generation of young men and women who are empowered to not only manage their own lives properly but be able to think critically and solve problems in their daily lives as functionally literate persons in adult life.
At Beverly School of Kenya, the emphasis is on Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Technology at BSK is fully integrated and embedded in the entire curriculum, cutting across all the subjects as opposed to being a standalone component
A school where students are valued as person’s created in God’s image, are responsible for their learning and can influence it by diligence, prayer for wisdom and the application of God’s word in their lives.
