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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
