Project Lead the Way
PLTW INTRODUCES YOUNG MINDS TO THE WONDERS OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATH (STEM).
What is Project Lead The Way?
Engaging students at a young age builds confidence, grows interest, and puts them on course for strong accomplishments in middle school, high school, and beyond.
Through PLTW Launch, the program for kindergarten through fifth grade, students become problem solvers. Students use structured approaches, like the engineering design process, and employ critical thinking. They apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, learning that it is OK to take risks and make mistakes. As teachers and students learn and discover together, education becomes far more engaging.
All students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in PLTW beginning in the Fall of 2015. Forest Lake has two lead teachers who are certified to teach the curriculum. PLTW is taught within a related arts rotation.
