A waxy painting project for your classroom

Some kids are naturally drawn to artistic outlets such as drawing, painting, or sculpting, but anyone can learn from attempting to communicate artistically. Learning creative processes and understanding materials can give new meaning to the way you see things in the world. Jodie Sutton is a full-time member of our Pitsco family, and in her spare time (after being a full-time mom and wife too), she finds some stress relief by creating encaustic paintings. . . .

Fizzyology: Researching the root beer float

What’s more refreshing than a cold, foamy root beer float on a warm summer’s day? Imagine escaping the squelching summer heat by heading into a cool fountain shop for a creamy, foamy, fizzy treat.
