    What is Project Lead the Way?

    Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S.

    STEM education is at the heart of today’s high-tech, high-skill global economy. For America to remain economically competitive, our next generation of leaders -- the students of today -- must develop the critical-reasoning and problem-solving skills that will help make them the most productive in the world.

    STEM education programs like the one offered by PLTW engage students in activities-, projects-, and problem-based (APPB) learning, which provides hands-on classroom experiences. Students create, design, build, discover, collaborate and solve problems while applying what they learn in math and science. They're also exposed to STEM fields through professionals from local industries who supplement the real-world aspect of the curriculum through mentorships and workplace experiences.

    PLTW's comprehensive curriculum for engineering, biomedical sciences, and computer science have been collaboratively designed by PLTW teachers, university educators, engineering, biomedical, programming professionals, and school administrators to promote critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world problem solving skills in students.

    The hands-on, project-based engineering, biomedical sciences, and computer science courses 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
