Delivering Digital Content, Modern Technologies, and Professional Development
PASCO has been designing, developing, and supporting innovative teaching and learning solutions for K–12 and higher education since 1964. PASCO’s team of educators, scientists, educational researchers, engineers, and many others is committed to the advancement of STEM education around the world.
Today teachers and students in more than 100 countries use PASCO solutions. PASCO’s complete program support includes custom implementation planning, standards alignment, curriculum integration, and systemic professional development.
Recognizing the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education in preparing the students of today for the job opportunities of tomorrow, PASCO has partnered with NSTA and other leading organizations to aid schools and teachers in the development of their STEM programs; such as our annual STEM Educator awards.
PASCO also recognizes that resources and professional development are critical for the successful implementation of STEM initiatives and is ready to partner with ministries, districts and schools to help develop a plan that aligns with your vision.
As a starting point, we have developed several complete STEM units (PASCO STEM Modules), to include content, equipment, technology and instructions to help jump start your STEM program.
About our STEM Modules
Looking for a pre-packaged approach to STEM practices?
PASCO's STEM modules integrate the four components of STEM through an engineering design challenge in the life or physical sciences, with a tangible product or process as the outcome.
Each module is aligned with national standards and includes both individual and cooperative tasks.
The 4 STEM Modules are:
In addition, PASCO offers numerous inquiry-driven, project-based solutions that can be readily integrated and customized to meet your program needs.
