Project Lead the Way

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a national non-profit engineering and biomedical sciences education program found in more than 5,000 schools in all 50 states nationwide.  Its sequence of courses, when combined with appropriate mathematics and science courses in middle and high school, introduces students to the scope, rigor and discipline of engineering, technology, and biomedical sciences prior to entering college.  The programs’ formal curriculum is rigorous and contemporary, problem/project-based, and is supported by relevant teacher professional development which is provided in a required immersion format and further augmented in an ongoing manner through a web-based Virtual Academy.
