What is Project Lead The Way?

                                                                What is Project Lead The Way?

 

Robotics, the science of flight, 3D modeling courses these are the future of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math classes, (STEM). We offer challenging, hands-on courses where students explore these subjects through the Project Lead The Way program. Available to students from K-12, these courses develop students’ critical thinking skills, preparing the foundation for their education in a high-tech global economy.

 

In our Launch program, K-5 students build robots, learn about the science of motion, and the differences between genetic traits and those influenced by our environment.

 

In the Gateway program for 6-8, students discover coding, DNA and crime scene analysis, and architectural design through build roller coasters and other projects.

 

Our Engineering Program is available to high school students. Students can take Introduction to Engineering Design and Principles of Engineering, applying research and design principles through yearlong courses.
