PLTW Launch (PreK-5)

New Hero 2020 Release Launch

PLTW Launch: Your Science Solution

PLTW Launch is designed to meet your science learning needs no matter your state's standards. The modules 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, while also supporting individual state science standards. This ensures an unmatched experience, for students across the country, combining three-dimensional learning; activity-, project-, and problem-based (APB) instructional approach; real-world applied learning; and full coverage of NGSS performance expectations – all in one program.

We would like to thank Arconic Foundation, Chevron, PPG Foundation, and SunPower for their generous support that made the important PLTW Launch expansion updates possible.
