A Four Year Approach to Promoting Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Pitsco Education understands the need to prepare today’s learners for the challenges of tomorrow. Through partnerships with schools and businesses, we strive to transform learning from standardized to personalized, from sit and get to hands-on, from one correct answer to open-ended problem solving, and from individual to collaborative learning.
Our High School STEM Continuum was designed not only to engage students in rich, relevant STEM content but to revive education and learning in America’s high schools so our future workforce will stand equipped with the knowledge, soft skills, and experiences to thrive in our global economy. Each dynamic grade-level experience builds upon the previous, preparing students to solve actual, unsolved problems posed by local business and industry.
Entrepreneurship 101: At this level, students are afforded more exploration and open-ended problem solving time via the StartUp Genius tool. Through questions submitted from local higher education institutions, heavy emphasis is placed on the stages of developing new ideas. Instant feedback is expanded to include not only school personnel but also a college level advisory committee.
