PLTW Launch (PreK-5)
Elementary students have a remarkable capacity to learn and a natural curiosity to make sense of the world around them. Engage your PreK-5 students in hands-on learning that turns their curiosity into confidence with the new PLTW Launch experiences available for the 2020-21 school year.
New K-5 Modules
More Opportunities to Engage Your Elementary Students and Provide a Transformative and Engaging Learning Experience
PLTW Launch is designed to intentionally connect to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as well as best practices in science education as outlined by the A Framework for K-12 Science Education. Today, the PLTW Launch program covers a number of NGSS Performance Expectations. By next school year, we’ll add 15 new modules across grades K-5, ensuring PLTW Launch provides full coverage of NGSS performance expectations.
PLTW Launch provides an unmatched experience combining three-dimensional learning; activity-, project-, and problem-based (APB) instructional approach; and real-world applied learning – all in one program.
PLTW is committed to offering a flexible implementation approach to match a district’s or school’s schedule, culture, technology infrastructure, language, organizational goals, and state standards. And our efforts don’t stop here. We’re also committed to providing an engaging and transformative learning experience. In the upcoming years, we will continue updating PLTW Launch modules to include features like family connections, interactive vocabulary flashcards, additional teacher instructional resources, and more.
