What types of programs does Project Lead The Way offer?
Through PLTW’s K-12 pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, students learn problem-solving strategies, critical and creative thinking, and how to communicate and collaborate. They apply knowledge from a variety of disciplines as they engage in hands-on activities, projects, and problems reflective of real-world scenarios and careers.
PLTW’s five programs are:
PLTW curriculum is developed by a talented team of writers, a majority of whom are former teachers or administrators. We seek ongoing input and feedback from students, teachers, administrators, and subject matter experts. Our work is also informed by current research and experts in academics and industry to ensure that it meets the needs of students and educators.
Preparing students to thrive
STEM knowledge and skills are used in many more occupations than those traditionally thought of as science and engineering.
More than 8,000 elementary, middle, and high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia offer PLTW programs.
More than 1 million students are enrolled in PLTW programs.
In 2015, PLTW trained more than 10,000 teachers and has trained more than 29,000 teachers since 1997.
