Pre-Engineering Project Lead The Way

 Program Description:

PLTW’s mission is to prepare students for the global economy, which it does by increasing the number of American students prepared to enter the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce. PLTW programs give students hands-on, project-based experiences, helping them link math, technology, and science concepts to real-world problem solving.
