Project Lead The Way - Information Sessions

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) comprehensive STEM (science, technology,  engineering, mathematics) programs were endorsed by the Massachusetts  Governor's STEM Advisory Council. PLTW curricula are collaboratively  designed by K-12 teachers, university educators, engineering and  biomedical professionals, and school administrators to promote  critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world  problem-solving skills in students. The hands-on, project-based  programs 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. PLTW  currently provides three programs for grades 6 to 12; an elementary  program for K-5 will be released in 2014. More than 5,200 schools in  all 50 states and the District of Columbia currently offer PLTW  courses to their students. For more information, attend a one-hour  PLTW information session. Information sessions will be held at the  University of Massachusetts Amherst, 138 Hasbrouck  on Tuesday April  30th at 4:00 and at the Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical  High School, 250 Foundry Street, South Easton on Wednesday May 1st at  3:00. For more information or to RSVP for an information session  please contact Carolyn Malstrom at cmalstrom@pltw.org.
