Each summer, Auburn University offers Core Training for Engineering, Biomedical Science, Gateway, and Launch programs to train participants to become Project Lead The Way teachers. According to the PLTW network agreement, only trained PLTW teachers may teach the curriculum.
Core Training provides teachers with the knowledge to utilize the PLTW technology, software and associated curriculum. Classes are taught by PLTW Master Teachers and Affiliate Professors who bring hands-on teaching experience to the classroom. PLTW pays significant attention to assessing the teachers’ readiness for the intensive training.
