PLTW is designing distance learning enhancements to continue the hands-on experience but limit materials to those that are already part of the program kits and are safe and feasible to transport and use at home. With our support, we aim to enable transitions so that students can get the in-classroom experience when possible and then pivot to distance learning when needed.
