Helping finance your classroom

Posted by Katlie Brynds on October 21, 2019

Classroom funding is a hard topic. We know educators sacrifice and work diligently to creatively supply resources and opportunities for their students and initiatives. If you’re looking to fund a special project, stocking your STEM lab, or a hands-on classroom activity, it’s likely you’ve looked for grants. We are proud to award a $350 grant each month to assist with making hands-on learning possible!

Having trouble funding your STEM lab or hands-on classroom activities? The $350 Pitsco Grant is awarded in the form of a voucher that may be used to purchase hands-on STEM products, curriculum, and more on our website. Submit an application today!
