What is Project Lead the Way?

Project Lead the Way (PLTW)- Launch is an innovative project-based learning program that incorporates science, technology, engineering, and math. PLTW empowers students to develop and apply transportable skills (communication, creative and critical thinking, collaboration) by exploring real world challenges in exciting and engaging ways. PLTW offers pathways of study in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. Students learn technical skills while they practice the transferable skills. Teachers facilitate modules that consist of activities, a project and a problem to solve. This process allows students to gain knowledge and skills they will need to solve a real world problem.
