Hands On, Minds On is the Pitsco Way

The Pitsco Experience: Learning by Doing

We know teachers have the most important job on the planet. We also expect students to have a stake in their own education. As such, we believe in both empowering the educator and positioning students to lead. We’re confident that learning by doing is the only way to accomplish this. Our age-appropriate, student-centered K-12 learning solutions in STEM are delivered via hands-on products and programs. Standards can be addressed with relevant, real-world activities and manipulatives.

Further, we’re in the business to see both you and your students succeed. Whether it’s assistance from our world-class customer service experts who are just a call away or our educational service managers who are in classrooms assisting with program implementation, we’ll get you the support you need. Or if you need something from the rich gallery of downloadable documents and activities or an engaging hands-on professional development session that will take your work to the next level, we have it.

Truly, we’re in it for the educators and the students.

Pitsco Education - STEM East Continuum

Vested in Teacher and Student Success

Pitsco believes that each student has a unique and complex system of thinking and learning and that effective educators desire to reach their students and equip them with skills for the classroom and for life. Making STEM an accessible discipline for any teacher enables us to reach all types of learners from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and geographic locations.

Through STEM education, students’ interpersonal relationships are enhanced while content is mastered, delivering to society the next generation of workforce equipped with skills and abilities to impact the world. We believe it’s important to play a role in making the world a better place and to reward others who do the same.

“I answered a science question on a test [because of what I learned in the Expedition]. One of my friends has glasses. One of the lenses is thicker than the other. It is a convex lens, which makes it more powerful. I answered a question about that and got it right. It applies to everyday life, and I like that.”

“This is what education should be. This is what education should’ve always been.”
