Project Lead the Way



Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a cutting edge educational program that lets students learn about engineering. Students approach each unit learning the principles of engineering and then use that knowledge in hands-on activities. Students will design and build furniture, rockets, planes, turbines, robots, electrical circuits and more as they explore a new subject each semester. Finally, students learn to work creatively together to accomplish all of these feats.

PLTW is a three year program that begins in 6th grade with Medical Detectives and Design and Modeling. It continues in 7th grade with Flight and Space and Energy and the Environment. Finally, students cap off their curriculum with Magic of Electrons and Automation and Robotics. All students are welcome to try this exciting class in 6th grade.
