PICK Education is changing the lives of students daily. By moving seats from traditional classroom settings to more robust, authentic learning experiences, we have challenged teachers and engaged students in ways I never thought possible. Recently, two of our students who have been engaged with real medical research opportunities were awarded full four year scholarships at Southern Methodist University (SMU) to continue in bio-medical studies. Both students and the University noted the student experiences in PICK Education allowed them opportunities that placed them far ahead of their peers."
