Project Lead The Way

Project Lead The Way is the nation's leading provider of K-12 STEM programs. PLTW's world-class, activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum and high-quality teacher professional development, combined with an engaged network of educators and corporate partners, help students develop the skills they need to be successful in post-secondary education and beyond.

PLTW's rigorous and relevant curriculum is collaboratively developed and consistently reviews and improved by PLTW staff, teachers, university educators, industry experts, and school administrators. It leverages an innovative, project-based approach that fosters collaboration and builds critical-thinking skills. Over 6,500 schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia have adopted one or more PLTW programs of study.

Biomedical Science
PLTW Biomedical Science is a rigorous and relevant four-course sequence that allows students to play the roles of biomedical professionals as they investigate and study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.

Computer Science
PLTW Computer Science engages high school students in computational thinking and gets them excited about the possibilities in careers that use computing. As students explore topics like cybersecurity, big data, and artificial intelligence, they see how computing applies in various career fields. Students use professional programming languages to create their own apps, integrate technologies across devices and platforms, develop models and run simulations to communicate ideas in the sciences, and collaborate on software solutions to real world problems.

Engineering
PLTW Engineering is more than just another high school engineering program. It is about applying science, technology, engineering, and math through a project-based, hands-on approach to solve complex, open-ended problems in a real-world context. Students focus on the process of defining and solving a problem, not on getting the “right” answer. They learn how to apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to make the world a better place through innovation.
