Introducing Lasec Education
Our mission is to enable and empower future scientists and leaders to reach their full potential, through equipping classrooms and supporting educators.
For over 70 years the Lasec® Group has been supplying quality dependable solutions and services to the laboratory and scientific community in South Africa. As one of the first laboratory suppliers to expand beyond our borders, Lasec® has been meeting customers’ needs throughout Africa for more than 20 years. We extended our reach into education in the year 2000 with the acquisition of Scientific Teaching Aids, an educational product manufacturer situated in Pinetown, and after trading as Edutrade for a number of years, we finally emerge as Lasec® Education, a division of Lasec® SA (Pty) Ltd.
Our classroom laboratory solutions include resource and classroom assessments, teacher and learner activity guides as well as educator workshops designed to increase confidence in the practical use of the equipment. We offer a complete IoT-enabled educational solution with the aim of helping learners understand robotics and coding, engage them in practical STEM applications, and allow them to gain AI robotic knowledge and related skills, supporting the education sector as it transforms with 4IR.
Our kits are optimised for the African context and are aligned with the South African Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement of the Department of Education. Currently, 65% of our product range is manufactured in our KwaZulu-Natal factory.
Being part of the Lasec® Group gives us access to an extensive sourcing network and long-term partnerships with leading international manufacturers. With warehousing facilities in Cape Town and Durban, the Lasec® Group holds stock of a broad range of products, including consumables, instruments, laboratory furniture and educational resources and apparatus. Coupled with the ability to provide customised solutions through our local manufacturing facility, Lasec® Education is the one-stop shop to meet your STEM requirements. Our buying power means you can get the highest quality products at the most competitive prices.
Lasec® SA (Pty) Ltd achieved B-BBEE Level 1 certification, not only through our ownership structure but also through ongoing investment in the further development of skills of historically disadvantaged members of our team, developing historically disadvantaged suppliers and procurement from B-BBEE companies. Through the identified initiatives, the Lasec® Group is committed to playing a meaningful role to achieve lasting positive change in South Africa.
In addition to dealing directly with schools and education departments, we also proudly collaborate with corporates and non-profit organisations to make hands-on learning and discovery possible for all school children.
