“It's almost impossible to put it into words how much Project Lead The Way has contributed to who I am and who I want to be. It's immediately, from day one, 100 percent different from anything you expect to experience. We had a multitude of opportunities to experience and to see and to take in what BioMed really is as a whole.”
Kelsie O’Brien, PLTW Biomedical Science Alumna United States Air Force Academy
“The teacher is always the key, and Project Lead The Way has such a phenomenal training program for teachers.”
Dr. Richard Montgomery, PLTW District Administrator Star City Public School District | Star City, Arkansas
“As a teacher, I have been totally reinvigorated by this curriculum. One of the best things for me is seeing just how much kids can do when you challenge them to do it. I have no doubt that the kids who go through this program are better off when they get to college and when they get to jobs because they know how to do things for themselves.”
Becky Howell, PLTW Biomedical Science Master Teacher Lexington Richland School District No 5 | Columbia, South Carolina
