Project Lead The Way’s activity-, project-, problem-based STEM curriculum and high-quality teacher professional development create an engaging classroom environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in an evolving world. Through pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, K-12 students learn problem-solving strategies, critical and creative thinking, and how to communicate and collaborate. Over 8,000 schools in all 50 states offer PLTW programs, including over 80 schools across Massachusetts. WPI is one of PLTW’s affiliate universities and offers Core Training each summer to prepare educators to teach PLTW courses.

Join us for this professional development conference for teachers, school counselors, curriculum specialists, principals, district administrators, and interested business, industry and workforce development professionals. Come learn about the PLTW curricular programs that are aligned with the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. Hear from teachers, administrators and students at schools with successful PLTW programs. The conference is open to all K-12 schools.

PLTW programs are endorsed by Change the Equation, the American Aerospace Industry Association, the American Society for Engineering Education, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and others.
