Selected Case Studies

Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools in Kazakhstan

The Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools (NIS) in Kazakhstan were established to transform and modernize their country's schools. They chose to partner with PASCO to help transform their science education not only for the innovative technology solutions but also for the comprehensive professional development we could provide.

Brighton Grammar, Melbourne Australia

Brighton Grammar is an all-boys school in a suburb of Melbourne that had been struggling with outdated and unreliable science equipment before implementing PASCO solutions.The results were higher student engagement, motivation, and achievement. Inquiry based learning also saw a positive shift in the role of teachers as well.

Hillsborough County Public Schools, Florida

Biology teacher Larry Plank expanded the use of probeware in Hillsborough County Public Schools to support inquiry-based learning and help students develop a love of science. See the resultsof this PASCO partnership in 250 schools, which include more than 200,000 students.
