• The Transformative
    PLTW Experience

    Imagine a classroom of students working together to solve real-world problems – students who are disappointed to hear the bell ring because they're so engaged in their work. Imagine a teacher who can focus more time and energy on inspiring students. This is what happens every day in PLTW classrooms.

    Project Lead The Way provides an engaging, hands-on classroom environment focused on engineering principles to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive.  Global and local challenges surround us. To address these challenges and move forward, we need people who know problem-solving strategies, think critically and creatively, communicate and collaborate with others, and persevere when something does not work the first time. Project Lead The Way empowers students with these skills – relevant to any career or role they take on – and prepares teachers to engage their students in hands-on learning. Whether designing and producing prosthetics or deploying innovative water filtration devices in developing countries, PLTW students and the teachers who support them are empowered to make a difference in their classrooms, in their communities, and around the world.
