70% of students believe that PLTW classes help in other areas they want to study further.
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.
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. They have been challenged – they know how to step up and to take different pieces and parts, put them together, and make something new.
PLTW and Student Success
Our programs provide a transformative learning experience for PreK-12 students and teachers across the U.S.
The compelling, hands-on PLTW classroom experience changes the way students experience school, from preschool through graduation day.
Research demonstrates that PLTW students outperform their peers in school, are better prepared for post-secondary studies, and are more likely to consider careers as scientists, technology experts, engineers, mathematicians, healthcare providers, and researchers compared to their non-PLTW peers. Students find PLTW programs relevant, inspiring, engaging, and foundational to their future success.
