WHEREAS, MM has designed a STEM Program (the “Work Product”) based on its copyright-protected STEM-based curriculum; and WHEREAS, Licensee wishes to purchase a license for facilitating STEM-based activities utilizing MM’s Work Product, professional services (the “Services”), expertise, and curriculum.
THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises stated in this Agreement, the Licensor and Licensee (Parties) agree as follows:

a. License. MM grants to Licensee a non-exclusive license to use its curriculum, teaching materials and any other protected content MM deems necessary for either Party to perform its obligations under this Agreement.
b. Return of Documents. Following the completion of the Services, Licensee shall deliver to MM and will not keep in its possession, recreate or deliver to anyone else, any and all devices, records, data, notes, presentations, handouts, lists, correspondence, specifications, assignments, materials, equipment, other documents or property, or reproductions of any aforementioned items developed by MM.
3. TERM AND TERMINATION. This Agreement begins at the time of purchase and remains in effect until the time that the Work Product is no longer used by the Licensee.
a.

If performance of this Agreement or any obligation under this Agreement is prevented, restricted, or interfered with by causes beyond either Party’s reasonable control (“Force Majeure”), and if the Party unable to carry out its obligations gives the other Party prompt written notice of such event, then the obligations of the party invoking this provision shall be suspended to the extent necessary by such event.
