The Thought Behind the Process
When you talk to elementary teachers and principals, the challenges of teaching STEM-centric science curriculum quickly become clear.
“It’s time consuming.”
“We lack time and materials.”
“We’re preparing them for standardized tests, but we’re not preparing them to be scientists.”
Many teachers don’t have the time to prepare the science curriculum they want to teach
. Meanwhile, administrators can’t find the time and resources for students to learn the science they need to learn
In direct response to these challenges, Pitsco Education has developed a complete, hands-on STEM science curriculum for the elementary grades.
Pitsco Education’s team-directed framework is designed to bring hands-on, project-based curriculum into the elementary school. This system is convenient and effective – offering a rich science experience to students via a teacher-friendly solution.
In a Pitsco Education elementary classroom, science takes first place on the students’ agenda for the day.
