What does your ideal STEM program look like?
Our team can help create a customized implementation plan to not only start your program, but help maintain and set your students and teachers up for success. Expand your team to include PLTW.
Together We Create Strong STEM Programs
The strongest STEM programs typically concentrate on key shared, student-focused priorities.
Successful programs provide access to STEM courses to students at all grade levels.
Successful programs have several teachers trained to teach PLTW courses.
Successful programs have engaged district and school leaders.
PLTW is an active partner in your success, and we designed our implementation practices with flexibility in mind.
PLTW supports flexible implementation options that enable you to create the program that works best for your teachers and students. PLTW is the first organization to deliver comprehensive PreK-12 curricular pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science that are designed to engage students early, and support their learning as they develop interests, knowledge, and skills.
Any Teacher Can Teach STEM
PLTW’s activity-, project-, and problem-based approach to teaching and learning puts teachers and students at the heart of skilling up to solve real-world problems. Our elementary students can use the design process to create and iterate on projects, our middle school students can analyze medical data to diagnose disease, and our high school students are prepared to secure and protect systems against malware attacks.
Our students succeed because they are empowered by their PLTW teachers, and our PLTW teachers succeed because they are supported by our community of educators, and have the foundational expertise earned through PLTW Core Training.
PLTW Core Training is offered through a variety of formats, and our team can help you select which format works best for you.
Support for Sustainability
PLTW offers several funding resources and grant opportunities as well as support to help you plan with a personalized funding plan and 3-year investment estimate.
With the expertise of your new expanded team, you will work to create a plan that includes:
- Help developing an implementation plan that meets your current and future scheduling and staffing needs.
- Guidance identifying durable and consumable needs.
- A customized 3-year investment estimate that supports your STEM vision and reflects your schedule, staffing, and materials needs.
