PROJECT LEAD THE WAY IS A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT PROVIDES A TRANS FORMATIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR K-12 STUDENTS AND TEACHERS ACROSS THE U.S.
We create an engaging classroom environment unlike any other. PLTW empowers students to develop and apply in-demand, transportable skills by exploring real-world challenges. Through our pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, students not only learn technical skills, but also learn to solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate, and collaborate. We also provide teachers with the training, resources, and support they need to engage students in real-world learning. Students work though modules that consist of activities, a project and a problem. They work through three main activities where they gain knowledge and skills. Then they proceed to using those skills to investigate a meaningful project before finally transferring and applying the skills to a real-world problem.
