Working in teams of 3-4, Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) support classrooms for an entire school year, providing teachers the instructional bandwidth and efficiency to deliver a more rigorous academic curriculum that equips students with college-ready skills in mathematics, literacy, and social cognition.
In 2009, as a pilot grant, Arbor Rising partnered with Blue Engine Founder Nick Ehrmann to co-create:
- Financial Model — to monitor fundraising progress, create multiyear budget projections, and track key programmatic outcomes
- Communication Materials — to convey Blue Engine’s unique value proposition to prospective funding partners
