Published May 13, 2021

PITTSBURG, KS (May 13, 2021) – For 50 years, Pitsco Education has been committed to providing schools, districts, and states with hands-on in-school, after-school, and summer program solutions that develop future-ready skills while fostering a joy of teaching and a love of learning. This year has presented a unique challenge of supporting administrators, teachers, mentors, and friends in education who are tasked with meeting students where they are, accelerating their learning, and easing the social-emotional toll that has occurred as a result of the pandemic.

One thing of which Pitsco is certain: what is coming is better than what has gone, and this summer marks the start of the journey to create something new – something bigger, better, brighter – for all learners, big and small.

Pitsco's solutions span pre-K through Grade 12, educating students along every step of their school journey. Exciting topics such as coding and drones create an appetite for learning. Standards-aligned curriculum and activity guides ensure students engage with academic content. Ultimately, Pitsco's products and solutions provide students with deeper educational experiences that are rigorous and equitable, setting them up for future success no matter their path.

To help get educators started, Pitsco has created a digital guide, "Accelerate, Excite, Ignite: Experiential in-school, after-school, and summer classes, programs, and camps," showing how the hands-on programs not only stem learning loss but also work by exciting the mind and igniting student passion.

Together, we can provide ALL students learning experiences that praise their resiliency, nurture their growth, and build upon the knowledge and skills needed to start the journey toward a brighter future.
