Project Lead The Way (PLTW) comprehensive STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) programs were endorsed by the Massachusetts Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. PLTW curricula are collaboratively designed by K-12 teachers, university educators, engineering and biomedical professionals, and school administrators to promote critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world problem-solving skills in students. The hands-on, project-based programs engage students on multiple levels, expose them to areas of study that they typically do not pursue, and provide them with a foundation and proven path to college and career success.
PLTW currently provides three programs for grades 6 to 12; an elementary program for K-5 will be released in 2014. More than 5,200 schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia currently offer PLTW courses to their students.
For more information, attend a one-hour PLTW information session. Information sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 30th at 4:00 p.m.at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, room 138 in Hasbrouck Hall, and on Wednesday, May 1st at 3:00 p.m. at the Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School, 250 Foundry Street, South Easton.
