PLTW | Project Lead The Way
Project Lead The Way is the top organization for providing STEM education to students across the country. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. PLTW will be a part of the Brookwood 167 science curriculum for the 2014/2015 school year. All students will be introduced to the STEM Lab experience that will be in every school throughout Brookwood School District 167. Each grade level will experience two units of STEM education using Project Lead The Way. The experiences are engaging and require students to collaborate, critically think, create, and problem-solve (21st Century Learning).
More information is provided in the Launch and GTT Unit Descriptions. Students in grades K-6 will experience the Launch modules and students in grades 7-8 will experience the Gateway to Technology (GTT) modules.
