Who is Pitsco Education?
A Joint Venture
Their unwavering focus on offering great products and unmatched customer service has grown a weekend endeavor into a multifaceted corporation with thousands of products and more than 200 employees.
And while time and success have changed the company's appearance, every division, product, and employee of Pitsco Education is dedicated to learner success.
Today, Pitsco Education provides teachers the activities and materials necessary to give students positive and meaningful hands-on learning experiences.
Pitsco Education helps students succeed by inventing kits, developing curricula, and creating tools for the classroom that engage and inspire learners.
So how did this leader in education get involved with the LEGO® Group?
For many years Pitsco Education recognized the value in the brick sets and activities produced by the LEGO Group's education division, LEGO DACTA.
In 1997 the two companies created a formal partnership in the form of a joint venture - LEGO Education North America.
Combining Pitsco's education knowledge and operational excellence with the LEGO Group's unique and engaging hands-on sets and curriculum for science, technology, engineering, and math means educators and students now have the best of both worlds - engaging products, like LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education, that are supported by outstanding customer service and teacher resources.
Over the past 13 years, LEGO Education North America has grown to encompass product development and services for educators and students in pre-K through university level STEM classrooms and programs.
Thanks to the guidance and support from both sides of the venture, LEGO Education North America proudly provides teacher resources and classroom materials to millions of educators and students from across North America each year.
