"We can experiment and see how things work – look at it from different angles.”

PLTW Launch Turns Curiosity Into Confidence
Students, at an early age, have a remarkable capacity to learn and a natural curiosity to make sense of the world around them. Their innate drive to observe, explore, and discover makes the elementary grades a critical time to engage students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
PLTW Launch taps into students’ exploratory nature and turns their curiosity into confidence. Through PLTW's activity-, project-, problem-based (APB) instructional approach - which supports he three dimensions of science learning - students become creative, collaborative problem solvers ready to take on any challenge.
To empower elementary teachers to deliver this transformative learning experience, PLTW Professional Development provides comprehensive training, resources, and support.
