PITTSBURG, KS (September 4, 2018) – The end of summer marks the beginning of a new school year and a new Elementary STEM catalog from Pitsco Education. The 2018-19 catalog is filled with STEM products, supplies, storage, and our first K-2 coding solution – KUBO.

(Printable PDF)

KUBO's unique TagTile® system makes coding as easy as solving a puzzle. This screen-free system requires no setup and no prior coding experience. KUBO's coding teaches students how to break down problems and solve them in a logical way while working in a center-based learning environment. Plus, KUBO's online platform includes coding concepts and resources such as lesson plans, printable teacher guides, videos, and tutorials as well as downloadable Coding License certificates for students.

Other new products in the catalog include Pitsco's proprietary EZ Track Raceway and the Pitsco Maker Space Cart.

The EZ Track Raceway makes racing easy and more convenient than ever before. The track comes with 20 one-meter, high-strength PVC sections that can be used to create a single long lane or a shorter dual-lane setup for racing. The EZ Track Raceway is simple to set up and easy to stack and store when not in use. It works with CO2 dragsters, mousetrap vehicles, solar cars, bottle racers, and just about anything with wheels!

The Pitsco Maker Space Cart makes organizing your classroom or makerspace a breeze! This wheeled cart includes 21 bins for parts storage and a section that holds larger storage bins. Each end of the cart is lined with pegboard that can hold small tools and equipment. The top of the cart is a convenient place to display projects. A pegboard accessory kit, which is sold separately, is also available for use with the cart.

Other highlights in the catalog include free sample activities and the "What's Your Teaching Type?" quiz. This quiz takes teachers through a series of yes/no questions that lead them to determine their teaching type. For each teaching type, specific products are recommended for use in the classroom.

Let the start of a new school year bring exciting Pitsco products to your classroom, makerspace, or after school program! Request a catalog today at Pitsco.com/CatalogRequest.
