Dr. Harvey Dean (left), founder and CEO of Pitsco, Inc., is presented with a plaque by Dr. Brenda Sherbourne, dean of the East Central University College of Education and Psychology, during the dedication of the new Pitsco STEM Maker Space Lab in the Lanoy Education Building on July 27. Also pictured is ECU President John R. Hargrave. Dean, a 1965 ECU graduate, donated the materials and tools for the new and innovative lab, designed to integrate the STEM subjects - science, technology, engineering and math - into the school curriculum. Thanks to the new initiative at ECU, pre-service teachers will not only experience STEM in an exciting way, but also become even more effective teachers by using these tools.
