External Studies Supporting PLTW’s Impact in Students

PLTW programs provide a transformative learning experience for PreK-12 students and teachers across the U.S. The compelling, hands-on PLTW classroom experience changes how students experience school, from preschool through graduation day.

Multiple research studies demonstrate that PLTW students outperform their peers in school and feel better prepared for post-secondary studies. As a result, these students are more likely to consider careers as scientists, technology experts, engineers, mathematicians, healthcare providers, and researchers than non-PLTW peers. Students also find that PLTW programs are relevant, inspiring, engaging, and foundational to their future success.
