NASCO was started in 1941 by a vocational agriculture teacher. He developed several teaching aids to use in his vocational agriculture classes…teaching aids that were not readily available from any other source. This simple act of filling a classroom need with an appropriate product was to become a way of life for NASCO in years to come.
Located in Modesto, California and Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, NASCO is comprised of a central office, warehouse facilities, production facility (biologicals and educational kits), and plastics manufacturing plant.
NASCO’s over 20 different catalogs offer over 90,000 unique products to meet the needs of teachers in 14 different educational subject areas, farmers and ranchers, and industry.
