The Future of Work is Already Here

"From this point forth, we shall be leaving the firm foundation of fact and journeying together through the murky marshes of memory the future into thickets of wildest guesswork."

PCS Edventures’ Afterschool Curricula

Looking to bring more variety to your current afterschool program?

PCS Edventures has recently created a series of curricula that is perfect for afterschool settings, clubs, and more. Known as LABCards, these newly developed units cover topics ranging from exciting robotics and programming to 3-D printing, computer coding, and so much more.

 Robotics is a fast-growing program for youth, adding an attractive hands-on component to STEM education. However, many afterschool sites struggle with finding the resources they need to begin and sustain their youth robotics activities.
