Lansing leads the way with Project Lead the Way
This fall marks the beginning of a new era in Technology Education with the help of the nationally renowned program Project Lead the Way. This year, the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in the Middle School will experience the PLTW curriculum delivered by freshly trained Technology Teacher Ms. Lamie. There are plans to grow this program into the High School, leading the 8th grade into the Pathways to Engineering Program each year through graduation. Funding for this exciting program is provided by the Corporate Development Committee, which includes donations from private companies and citizens in the Greater Lansing Community.
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) prepares students to be the most innovative and productive leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and to make meaningful, pioneering contributions to our world. PLTW partners with middle schools and high schools to provide a rigorous, relevant STEM education. Through an engaging, hands-on curriculum, PLTW encourages the development of problem-solving skills, critical thinking, creative and innovative reasoning, and a love of learning. The PLTW middle and high school STEM education programs give students a brighter future by providing them with a foundation and proven path to college and career success in STEM-related fields. STEM education is at the heart of today’s high-tech, high-skill global economy. For America to remain economically competitive, our next generation of leaders must develop the critical-reasoning and problem-solving skills that will help make them the most productive in the world. PLTW sparks the ingenuity, creativity, and innovation within all of our students.
