Our Learning Philosophy
“What will you bring to the world?”
Students can’t hope to answer this question if we haven’t first brought the world to them. Teaching with Pitsco is putting a piece of the world in students’ hands and asking, “How does this apply to your life?”
Hands-on exploration and problem-solving reach across the curriculum and connect the classroom to careers. This has been a guiding ideal in Pitsco’s philosophy since the company’s founding more than 50 years ago, well before STEM had a name.
The true building blocks of our products and curricula aren’t balsa wood or robotics parts or multimedia presentations or even robust standards correlations, though all of these play a part. The true building blocks are shared experiences that engage hands and minds. These are what impart the next-generation skills that will serve students in life.
