Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S. More than 400,000 students in more than 4,200 schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia are taking PLTW STEM education courses during the 2011-12 academic year. Students have enjoyed success in a variety of fields and disciplines and have taken what they learned with PLTW far beyond the classroom. Since 2004, PLTW has used an independent service to conduct follow-up student testing and measure the programs’ impact. Student assessments are gathered at the end of each PLTW course, rating student interest and engagement. Participating schools also conduct surveys on a local and state level, while our other partners contribute wider education assessments. What we’ve found is that, across the board, PLTW works.
