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!

As the school year winds down, our thoughts turn to summer vacations, relaxing by the pool, and catching up on some good reads.
