NEW PITSCO STEM MAKER SPACE LAB OFFICIALLY OPENS IN ECU’S LANOY EDUCATION BUILDING

Dr. Harvey Dean, founder and CEO of Pitsco, Inc., demonstrates a straw rocket as Tammy Sparks, of Howe Public Schools, looks on in the new Pitsco STEM Maker Space Lab in East Central University’s Lanoy Education Building. Dean, a 1965 ECU graduate, donated the materials and tools for the lab which was dedicated on July 27. The new and innovative lab is 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.
