Through world-class K-12 curriculum, high-quality teacher professional development, and outstanding partnerships, PLTW is helping students develop the skills needed to succeed in the global economy.

Project Lead the Way is transforming STEM education in the classroom, both for teachers and students, in order to meet this critical workforce need.
